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.
