John Tiner, former chief executive of the FSA, will join the board of the Financial Services Skills Council (FSSC) it was announced today.
Tiner, who left the FSA last year when Hector Sants took over his position, will join the board of the FSSC following its next meeting in July 2008.

“The FSA and the skills council established a good working relationship, spanning many aspects of skills: qualifications, training and competence standards and financial capability,” he says.
“I'm delighted to be making a contribution to the industry's skills agenda by joining the FSSC Board.”
Roy Lighton, chairman of the FSSC, adds: “John has been a champion both of standards for the financial services industry and improved understanding for consumers of all ages. He has a keen understanding of the role that skills has to play at all levels of the financial services industry.”
