Evans was appointed to the board of Aviva at the end of last year and currently serves as a non-executive director of the The London Stock Exchange, private banking providers Clariden Leu, and the Wigmore Hall Trust.

She was formerly chairman of Investment Banking & Investment Management, at Barclay's Capital from April 2008 to October 2010. She has also been director of the markets division at the FSA and held senior management positions with the Bankers Trust company in New York and London.

FRC chairman Baroness Hogg said: "Gay brings to the FRC board a wide knowledge of international capital markets and their regulation, and will bring highly valuable insights to the FRC board."

Evans is also a member of the Council on foreign relations, an independent think tank and publisher. She is also a member of Forum UK, a network for senior professional women.
