Financial Services Commission to commence search for new CEO

GFSC Chairman, Jonathan Spencer, announced today that the Commission will shortly commence its search for a successor to the current CEO, Samantha Barrass, whose second term as CEO ends in August 2020. She intends to return to the UK to pursue the next stage of her career. 

The GFSC Board has appointed a specialist agency, Odgers Berndston, to commence the search for Samantha’s successor. The recruitment process will be managed by the Board who will work closely with the Minister of Commerce, Albert Isola. The appointment of the CEO is subject to the approval of the Minister.

Mr Spencer said: “The process to find the Commission’s next CEO will be robust and we will cast the widest net to ensure that we appoint a strong, competent leader who will deliver continuous improvement for our firms and consumers both in Gibraltar and abroad.
