THE FINANCIAL Conduct Authority (FCA) has appointed Sheree Howard as executive director of risk and compliance oversight (R&CO).
Howard (pictured) is currently interim director of R&CO after joining the City watchdog as a senior adviser in December 2017.
She has over 25 years of experience in financial services in the bank and insurance sectors, the FCA said, having held a number of senior roles.
Howard has experience of pricing, acquisitions, sales, divestment, risk and compliance as well as more traditional actuarial roles.
“Howard brings a wealth of knowledge and experience and has already made a real contribution to the FCA as a senior adviser and as interim director of R&CO,” FCA chief executive Andrew Bailey said.
“I look forward to continuing to work with Howard in her vital role on the executive committee and advising the board on the breadth of risk in the organisation.”
“I am looking forward to working with everyone in R&CO as well as with the executive, board and the rest of the FCA in helping to deliver our strategic aims,” Howard said.
Howard replaces Barbara Frohn in the role, who left the FCA earlier in 2019.
