Christopher Woolard is currently executive director of strategy and competition at the UK's Financial Conduct Authority. He will become the temporary head of the FCA beginning March 16, 2020, as Andrew Bailey departs to become governor of the Bank of England. Woolard will remain in that role until the Treasury appoints a permanent successor. 
Woolard joined the Financial Services Authority, which was later replaced by the FCA, in 2013.
