The FSA has appointed Ken Hogg, currently interim chief financial officer at MGM Assurance, as insurance sector director.
Hogg will start at the FSA on 6 July and will report to Jon Pain, FSA managing director, retail markets. Prior to joining MGM Assurance, he was chief operating officer at AIG Life and also spent 20 years at AEGON.
The Insurance Sector team leads the FSA's work on insurance sector issues and represents the FSA in its dealings with a wide range of external stakeholders including trade associations, professional bodies, analysts and international regulators.
Pain says: "Ken has a wide and extensive experience of the insurance industry with a particularly strong actuarial background. He will be a valuable addition to the FSA senior team and our oversight of the insurance industry."
Hogg succeeds Sarah Wilson, who will stay on for several more months in an advisory capacity.
