LSB Chief Executive to step down in February 2016

The Legal Services Board today confirmed that Richard Moriarty will step down from his role as Chief Executive in February 2016. Richard is returning to the UK’s Civil Aviation Authority as its Deputy Chief Executive and Group Director Consumers and Markets.

The LSB will advertise for a successor to Richard shortly with a view to making an appointment early in the autumn.

Until his departure, Richard will continue to lead the LSB and is fully committed to delivering its Strategy and Business Plan, whilst also making sure there is a smooth transition to his successor.

Richard Moriarty said:

I am surprised and delighted to be offered this unique opportunity to return to aviation regulation next year at what will be a critical time for the industry. I will leave behind a strong and motivated LSB team which I have no doubt will go from strength to strength in its pursuit of change in the legal services market, so that it better reflects the interests of the public and consumers. Until then, it is very much business as usual at the LSB“.

Chairman of the Legal Services Board, Sir Michael Pitt said:

“After making such a great start at the LSB, we will be sorry to see Richard leave us next year. He is a highly talented colleague and I wish him every success in his new role”.
