Changes to the FSA Board

The Chancellor, Alistair Darling said: “I am very pleased to announce the appointment of these new members to the FSA Board. Their mix of capabilities and backgrounds will make a valuable contribution to the work of the FSA.

“I would also like to take the opportunity to thank Michael Slack, who will step down from the Board at the end of this month, for his contribution to the work of the Board.”

Adair Turner, Chairman of the FSA, said: "These appointments are part of our ongoing succession planning for the FSA Board and we are continuing our current search for up to two new Board members to fulfil these vitally important roles."
