New Directors appointed at Skills Council

Lucy Courtenay from the Chartered Insurance Institute (CII) is to join the Financial Services Skills Council as the new Director of Standards and Accreditation – the latest in a series of senior appointments at the FSSC. This follows the earlier appointment of Mary Greene as Business Development and Research Director.

In her new role at the FSSC, Greene aims to promote views from across the financial services industry directly to government through Employer Forums, secure appropriate government funding for companies to use in training their staff and coordinate the latest market intelligence to help keep the market at the leading edge. Her previous roles include Sales Director at Eagle Star and Managing Director of the Financial Times Fund Ratings business.

Lucy Courtenay, the new Standards and Accreditation Director, will oversee the completion of the Examination Review and development of industry standards and frameworks. Courtenay, who is currently Qualifications Director at the CII, will also implement the Skills Council’s accreditation scheme.

Tom Caple will move from his post as Head of Sector Engagement to take up the role of Policy and Network Development Executive. Working with the executive team, Caple will monitor and evaluate the impact of the Skills Council on the sector and across the Skills for Business Network within which the FSSC operates with other sector skills councils, identifying best practices which can be introduced into the industry.

Teresa Sayers, Chief Executive of the FSSC, said: "We are delighted that Mary and Lucy are to join the executive team at the Skills Council. Both bring with them a wealth of industry knowledge and experience, and I look forward to working with them to progress the Skills Council’s aims and objectives."

Members of the board for the Financial Services Skills Council, which is chaired by David Prosser, Group Chief Executive of Legal & General, include David Kenmir, Managing Director of Regulatory Services of the Financial Services Authority, Richard Wastcoat, Managing Director of Fidelity Investment Services Ltd, and Sir David Howard, Chairman Charles Stanley & Co Ltd.
