TCF chief Wilson quits

The FSA’s director of treating customers fairly Sarah Wilson has resigned but will continue until a replacement has been found.

The FSA says Wilson, who was appointed as a director in April 2002, has resigned for personal reasons. As well as her TCF remit, Wilson is also a sector leader across the FSA for insurance.
