FRC hires public affairs specialist
The Financial Reporting Council (FRC) has appointed David Banks as public affairs manager in its communications team.
Banks will manage the FRC’s political engagement and promote understanding of its role in corporate governance, audit regulation and corporate reporting. He will report to Peter Timberlake, head of communications at the FRC.
Most recently, Banks held an external affairs executive role at the Money Advice Service (MAS), where he led the organisation’s constituency engagement programme across England and the devolved nations, and focused on engagement relating to HM Treasury’s review of public financial guidance.
Previously, Banks held a public affairs officer role on the Crossrail project, leading on apprenticeships and skills, employment relations and environment public affairs work-streams, and worked on policy areas including corporate governance, executive pay, organisational culture and values at the CIPD.
