FSA reappoints Deirdre Hutton for third term

The Financial Services Authority has reappointed Deirdre Hutton to a third term as a non-executive board director.

The three-year term takes effect from December 11 2003 where Hutton will also take over as deputy chairman of the board and chairman of the FSA committee of non-executive directors when Stewart Boyd retires at the end of March 2004.

It is also announced that Christopher Rodrigues will leave the FSA Board when his second term expires on December 10 2003.

Ruth Kelly, financial secretary to the Treasury, says: “I am delighted to announce the reappointment of Deirdre Hutton and her appointment as deputy chairman which will ensure continuity at a time when the FSA is taking on increasing regulatory challenges.”
