Executive Director Samantha Barrass to leave SRA
Samantha Barrass has been appointed chief executive of the Gibraltar Financial Services Commission and will leave the SRA in February.
The move makes a return to financial services for Ms Barrass, who had a successful career in the UK financial services sector prior to joining the SRA in 2009.
During her time at the SRA, Ms Barrass has been at the forefront of the SRA’s high-profile reform of legal services regulation.
SRA chief executive Antony Townsend said: “I am particularly grateful to Samantha for her leadership in implementing outcomes-focused regulation and the framework for our licensing of ABSs [alternative business structures].
“In addition, the development of our risk-based approach to regulation has been constant throughout her career here; first in her work with the risk centre and now through her leadership of the R-View change programme. I wish her every success in her new role.”
