JERSEY FINANCIAL SERVICES COMMISSION APPOINTS JOHN EVERETT AS DEPUTY DIRECTOR GENERAL
The Jersey Financial Services Commission (JFSC) has announced the appointment of John Everett as its new Deputy Director General.
The Deputy Director General will play a key role in progressing the Commission's current Change Programme, as it continues to become a more efficient and effective regulator. The planned changes include improved identification and mitigation of supervisory risk, as well as easier electronic means for firms to deal with the Commission. Further industry communication on this will follow in the coming weeks.
The appointment re-instates the Deputy Director General position which was a part of the Commission's senior management structure until 2009.
As well as his role in the Change Programme, John will oversee the Commission's Supervision and Policy activities, ensuring effective co-ordination between the development of policy and its implementation.
Commenting on the appointment John Harris, Director General, said:
“Since his arrival in May 2014, John has more than demonstrated the attributes, experience, commitment and leadership needed for the role of Deputy Director General. His background as a public policy professional, specialist in financial services regulation and extensive international legislative knowledge make him ideally suited for the role, and I am delighted with his appointment”
John Everett added:
“I am looking forward to working with John and the rest of the Executive in driving forward the Commission during this period in its development.”
