Caroline Siarkiewicz has been appointed as chief executive of the Money and Pensions Service (Maps) after seven months in the position on a temporary basis.
She took over the role in June last year upon the surprise resignation of John Govett, who left the advice and guidance body after just 11 months in the post.
Siarkiewicz's appointment comes days after the body published a ten-year strategy for financial wellbeing, detailing plans to boost financial education for young people, improving the number of people saving regularly, and help people gain better access to debt advice.
She said she was looking forward to helping "everyone making the most of their money and pensions".
"Maps has a unique role in connecting people behind a collective goal of improving financial wellbeing throughout the UK. As chief executive, I am ambitious and excited for what we can achieve through working together towards a common purpose."
Pensions and financial inclusion minister Guy Opperman welcomed her appointment: "I'm delighted that Caroline will be leading Maps through the next stage of its development. The delivery of the UK strategy and pensions dashboard, alongside the current services that support the most vulnerable, remain top priorities for this government. I wish Caroline and all of the team at Maps every success."
Maps chairman Sir Hector Sants added Siarkiewicz had been appointed following "a robust recruitment process".
"Caroline has demonstrated - both through her time as acting chief executive and in her previous roles - her understanding of and commitment to Maps' vision, its customers, its people, and its stakeholders throughout the UK."
Siarkiewicz was previously partnerships and commissioning director at Maps, focusing on the organisation's relationships with partners throughout the UK. Prior to this, she was head of UK debt advice at the Money Advice Service (now part of Maps), and chief executive of the Institute of Money Advisers.
