TPAS chairman David Harker dies

The Pensions Advisory Service chairman and former Citizens Advice chief executive David Harker has died after a short illness.

Harker, who was 64, was appointed chairman of TPAS in June last year.

Harker led Citizens Advice for 13 years to 2010. He also served on the Financial Services Authority’s Financial Services Consumer Panel, later joining the FCA’s board from April 2013.

Harker was also managing director of disability charity Sense.

Citizens Advice chief executive Gillian Guy said: “David Harker was passionate about Citizens Advice and delivering services to meet the needs of our clients.

“He recognised early on that as a service we need to diversify our funding and it was under his leadership that Citizens Advice secured the first agreement for debt advice.  His passing is a great loss to the sector and the organisations he worked closely with, our sympathies are with his family.”

TPAS chief executive Michelle Cracknell says: “We are very sad to lose David as our chair and our thoughts are with his family.”
