FCA hires TP ICAP’s Dominic Cashman as Director of Authorisations
The UK Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) has appointed two new Directors of Authorisations. A new Finance Director will also join the regulator this spring.
Laura Dawes will take up one of the new Director of Authorisations roles. She is currently interim Director of Strategy, Policy, International and Intelligence in the FCA’s Enforcement and Market Oversight Division.
Working alongside Laura Dawes as fellow Director of Authorisations will be Dominic Cashman. Mr Cashman joins the regulator from TP ICAP, an interdealer broker, where he was most recently Head of Integration and Transformation and, previously, Interim Group Head of Operations.
Before this, Dominic Cashman was at Nomura between 2008 and 2017, where he was Head of Regulatory Operations from 2014-17. He has also been an active 30% Club mentor.
Laura Dawes and Dominic Cashman will start their new roles in late April and early May.
Craig Chapman will join the FCA as Finance Director in May. He is currently Chief Financial Officer at RTX RouteTrader, a fintech operating in the telecoms sector. Before that, Mr Chapman held senior finance roles at ED&F Man, a commodities trader, and Barclays Capital.
His appointment follows the retirement of David Godfrey as the FCA’s Finance Director.
Emily Shepperd, Chief Operating Officer and Executive Director of Authorisations at the FCA, said:
‘I look forward to welcoming Craig, Dominic and Laura to their new roles later this spring. Tackling the risk of consumer harm starts when firms apply to us for authorisation. Dominic and Laura will lead this vital part of the regulatory system.
Craig is an experienced chief financial officer who will play a central part in making sure we have the right resources and we’re using them in the best way possible to meet our important objectives.’
