FCA appoints Christopher Woolard as interim chairman

(Sharecast News) - The Financial Conduct Authority has appointed Christopher Woolard as its interim chief executive.
Woolard - who is currently the FCA's executive director of strategy and competition and an executive member of the board - will take on the role following Andrew Bailey's departure on 16 March to become Governor of the Bank of England.

He will remain in the post until a permanent successor is appointed and able to start in the role, the FCA said.

Chair Charles Randell said: "I'm looking forward to working with Chris in his interim chief executive role. I'm confident that he and executive committee colleagues will continue to deliver our ambitious plans for change in 2020 and beyond, building on the foundations laid by Andrew Bailey."
