Ex-FOS deputy Tony Boorman joins compliance firm

Former Financial Ombudsman Service deputy chief executive Tony Boorman has joined regulatory and compliance consulting firm Promontory Financial Group.

Boorman is taking up the role of senior adviser in the firm’s London office.

His initial focus will be working with clients facing a range of consumer protection issues, in particular relating to customer redress and complaints.

Boorman stepped down from his role at the FOS in November and took up a non-executive directorship at trade body the Peer-to-Peer Finance Association. He will retain this role alongside his full-time position at Promontory.

Boorman took on the role of interim FOS chief executive between January and July last year, following the departure of Natalie Ceeney.

Former FOS principal ombudsman and legal director Caroline Wayman was appointed chief executive of the organisation in July.
