The Financial Services Council (FSC) has appointed deputy chief executive Blake Briggs as acting CEO, as Sally Loane steps down after seven years at the helm.

FSC chair, David Bryant, said Briggs’ appointment would ensure the council continued to be a strong advocate for the financial services industry and its consumers.

“Blake has brought the industry together on key issues, including advocating for reforms to make financial advice more accessible and affordable, and promoted the interests of superannuation and life insurance consumers by bringing an end to occupational exclusions in group life insurance policies,” Bryant said.

Briggs was formerly the head of government affairs for Wealth at Westpac, and previously led superannuation policy for the FSC.

Loane would step down from her role on 23 December, 2021.
