We have strengthened our Board and executive team – the new appointments clearly signal our intention to help restore trust in the sector, with a clear focus on vulnerable consumers and small businesses.

Dave Pickering, now permanently appointed as Chief Executive, is joined by Martin Coppack in the role of Deputy Chief Executive – Martin was Head of Partnerships at the Financial Conduct Authority where he created its consumer vulnerability and financial inclusion programmes, as well as its model for engaging with consumer and civil society organisations.

We have also appointed two new independent non-executive directors to the Board. Liz Barclay, broadcaster and consumer champion and Elaine Kempson, emeritus professor at Bristol University, bring a wealth of experience in consumer and small business affairs and are looking forward to helping develop the LSB’s consumer agenda.
