Robinson, who left Metronet subcontractor Trans4m at the beginning of this month, has been placed in charge of communications for the FSA’s Retail Markets Business Unit, which handles regulation of, and relations with, the retail banking and insurance sectors.
Robinson reports to retail markets MD Clive Briault and is working with the FSA’s press office, as well as head of PR Rob McIvor and head of public affairs and accountability Christopher Boyce.
The move comes as the FSA takes on the regulation of mortgage and general insurance following the enactment of the 2000 Financial Services and Markets Act. The FSA will take responsibility for mortgage and long-term care insurance regulation on 31 October and for general insurance from 14 January next year.
Robinson, who was head of comms at Trans4m for one year, was replaced two weeks ago by Tessa O’Neill.
