UK - Former Money Channel head Tony Hobman is taking over from Caroline Instance as chief executive of the Occupational Pensions Regulatory Authority.
Hobman was previously chief executive of investor communications and employee share ownership advisors ProShare before heading up the digital TV service.
OPRA chairman Harriet Maunsell said: “Tony has skills that are both valuable and highly relevant at this point in OPRA’s development.
“His experience of senior management in both the public and private sectors, together with his experience of managing change within a financial services organisation, will be invaluable at a time when a number of reviews – including the pensions simplification review and the quinquennial review of OPRA – will all impact on the development of the regulator’s role.”
