Question over Pritchard role at the regulator

I note that a certain David Pritchard has been appointed by FSA head honcho Tiner as an adviser to the “end-to-end” review of the enforcement process – following its losing both to Legal & General and the splits’ companies – to “help speed up the fairness of decisions made”.

Would this, by any chance, be the same David Pritchard who was a director of Lloyds TSB when it was fined nearly 2m by the very same FSA and told to compensate 22,500 customers with 98m for missold income and growth plans?

If so, how does Tiner justify his invitation? I think we should be told.
