New Chairman of FSA Practitioner Panel
Iain takes the place of Nick Prettejohn, who stands down having completed his two year term as Chairman.
Iain Cornish has been Chief Executive of Yorkshire Building Society since July 2003, and has been a member of the Practitioner Panel since March 2007. He said: “The FSA is currently under more pressure than ever. Everyone has an interest in the effective and proportionate regulation of financial services. I want to ensure that the Practitioner Panel helps the FSA to get the balance right, and that it provides a constructive industry voice on the issues which are at the heart of FSA policy making.”
Adair Turner, FSA chairman, said: “The Practitioner Panel provides the FSA with a senior industry sounding board which is extremely valuable in ensuring we take firms’ interests into account. I thank Nick Prettejohn for all his advice during his Chairmanship, and look forward to working with Iain in the future.”
