The Chartered Insurance Institute has appointed three directors to its Professional Standards committee.
The committee provides independent guidance on accountability, transparency, and consumer representation for the professional body, overseeing competence and ethical behaviour across the institute’s membership.
Kate Wellington, head of legal operations for Which?, and James Daley, managing director of Fairer Finance, will be serving as independent consumer representatives on the committee.
Mark Butterworth, managing director of Condie Risk Consultancy and former chairman of the Association of Insurance Risk Managers and the Institute of Risk Management, will be serving as the committee's commercial representative.
The directors replace outgoing committee members Professor Charles Munn, board member of the European Financial Planning Association and a former lay member of the CII board, finance journalist Teresa Hunter, and Sue Lewis, former chairwoman of the Financial Services Consumer Panel.
Ms Lewis left her position at the FSCP in February after five and a half years in the role and was succeeded by Wanda Goldwag at the beginning of this month.
Sian Fisher, chief executive of the Chartered Insurance Institute, said: "I would like to take this opportunity to thank our outgoing board members for their invaluable contribution and guidance over the past few years and welcome our new appointments.
"It is encouraging to see highly experienced professionals drawn to working with the CII in its commitments to building public trust.
"Their contribution will equally be invaluable in furthering our ambition to better protect the interests of the consumer by supporting the aspirations of our members."
