Michael Faulkner, the former Insurance Times news editor who was to join the Financial Services Authority's corporate comms team (PRWeek, 15 Sep), has instead joined agency The Writer.
Faulkner started at The Writer, which helps clients to produce promotional material, last week as - fittingly - a writer.
He said the agency's offer better ‘suited his ambitions'. The FSA has internally promoted Heidi Ashley to the role that Faulkner was to take up.
Faulkner worked for Insurance Times for four years. Before that he was a lawyer.
