This week we welcome David Gulland to our compliance committee. David is an experienced insurance professional who worked initially as a consulting actuary before taking on various senior executive roles within insurance companies.

David has always focused on the customer during his career and has carried out compliance work for various regulators. He is a member of Royal London’s Independent Governance Committee, and a non-executive Director of PG Mutual, in addition to various charitable and community roles.

As a new member of the Committee, David is looking forward to supporting the Funeral Planning Authority as we continue our aims of raising standards of provider behaviour and protecting consumers by ensuring the industry is focused on their needs and interests.

David has replaced Pam Hurley who has retired after a long period of service on the Compliance Committee. We thank Pam for her support in ensuring that the high level of standards that we expect from our registered providers are reached.
