The appointment, made by HM Treasury, is for a three year term starting 1 August 2015.

Welcoming the appointment, FCA Chairman John Griffith-Jones said:

"Christopher has been a vital member of the FCA’s Executive Committee since the inception of the organisation, in particular shaping the strategy launched in December last year and our approach to competition. He will bring invaluable experience and judgement to the Board from his time at the FCA, but also outside the financial sector.”

Christopher Woolard, Director of Strategy and Competition said:

"I am joining the Board at an important juncture for the FCA. I look forward to helping the board ensure that the FCA is able to meet the many challenges ahead of it.”

Christopher Woolard joined the FCA in January 2013 as Director of Policy, Risk and Research which became Strategy and Competition in December 2014. He is a non-executive member of the Board of the Payment Systems Regulator.

Prior to this he was Group Director and Content Board member at Ofcom. He has spent most of his career in regulation or policy development including working at the BBC and as a senior civil servant at the Department of Trade and Industry. He is a Sloan Fellow of London Business School.
