The announcement says that Lesley Titcomb is currently Chief Operating Officer and a Board member with the Financial Conduct Authority, and will take up her new post from 2 March 2015.

With so much fundamental change, it is important that the industry is overseen by a strong, independent pensions regulator, focused on the issues within the sector, that is respected for its technical expertise and authoritative voice.
