New BCCA Chief Executive Announcement PDF Print E-mail
Monday, 20 July 2015

Announcing the appointment of a new chief executive, Richard Fuller, BCCA chairman, said:

“I am pleased to announce the appointment of Jason Wassell as the new Chief Executive of BCCA.

“Jason’s career includes time both in the public and commercial sectors – working with major government agencies as well as some of the biggest blue chip companies.  This includes financial service experience as a former public affairs consultant for RBS, Tesco Bank and Standard Life.  

“Over the last few years Jason has worked with a number of consumer credit companies.

“Recently, Jason has been involved in helping a range of companies with their application for FCA authorisation.  This has ranged from one of the largest short-term lenders, with both online and store lending, to a lender operating a single store.  Recent projects include working with one of the UK’s largest non-bank credit card companies in the store card and sub/near-prime space.

“Jason’s work has involved the tracking of political issues, understanding the perspectives of key stakeholders, developing communication strategies and building coalitions.   

“Jason is one of the UK’s first Chartered PR practitioners, as well as Fellow of the Chartered Institute of Public Relations.  His pioneering work on the changing role of communications, particularly in stakeholder engagement, led to the award of Chartered Status.

“Much of his advocacy for our industry has been through his involvement on a range of boards – including BCCA, the Consumer Finance Association and the National Pawnbrokers Association.  

“Jason’s experience brings together a wealth of understanding of consumer credit regulation with the communication skills that continue to solidify BCCA as the most respected and trusted trade association in consumer credit.

“Please join me in wishing Jason every success in his new role!”
