UK -The Occupational Pensions Regulatory Authority (Opra) has appointed Tony Hobman as it's new chief executive.
Speaking about his appointment, Opra chairman Harriet Maunsell said that Hobman's experience in both the private and public sector would be both valuable and highly relevant at this point in Opra's development.
Maunsell was referring to a number of upcoming events - including the Pickering Review and the quinennial review of Opra - will impact on the development of the regulator's role.
Hobman joins the regulator after a stint as a private consultant. Prior to his recent consultancy work, he was chief executive officer of the Money Channel. His past experience includes roles at Barclays Bank and at ProShare, first as its head of investor services and later chief executive.
