David Jackman

David Jackman has been at the forefront of designing innovative financial services regulation and international sustainability standards. As head of ethics at the Financial Services Authority (FSA – now the FCA) he was the first senior regulator to focus on ethics, culture and corporate maturity. He was also primarily responsible for introducing competence standards for the UK financial services industry. Both systems are now adopted by many other jurisdictions. He co-founded a successful professional institute for market professionals and became the first chief executive of the industry-government Financial Services Skills Council. As chairman of the British Standards Institution (BSi) committee for sustainable communities, he is primary author of the ground- breaking UK national standards for sustainable development (including for the Olympics 2012) and sustainable communities. He is now co-authoring a parallel series of influential international standards – ISO 37101 and 37104 – for developing smart cities and resilient communities. David graduated from Oxford and Cambridge Universities, held a visiting professorship and was a visiting fellow of Cambridge University Judge Business School. David currently lectures, researches, consults, and campaigns internationally and his previous book, The Compliance Revolution (Wiley 2015) is a standard text. David holds a number of non-executive chairmanships and lives in the inspiring English Lake District.
