Maps names Caroline Siarkiewicz as permanent chief executive

The Money and Pensions Service (Maps) has appointed Caroline Siarkiewicz as permanent chief executive with immediate effect.

Siarkiewicz, who has served as interim CEO since June 2019, was previously partnerships and commissioning director at Maps, an executive board role with responsibility for the organisation’s relationships with partners throughout the UK, and for money guidance and debt advice operations.

Prior to this, she was head of UK debt advice at one of Maps’ forerunners, the Money Advice Service, and had been chief executive of the Institute of Money Advisers.

“Maps has a unique role in connecting people behind a collective goal of improving financial wellbeing throughout the UK. As chief executive, I am ambitious and excited for what we can achieve through working together towards a common purpose,” said Siarkiewicz.

Commenting on the appointment, Pensions Minister, Guy Opperman, stated: “I’m delighted that Caroline will be leading Maps through the next stage of its development. The delivery of the UK Strategy and Pensions Dashboard, alongside the current services that support the most vulnerable, remain top priorities for this government. I wish Caroline and all of the team at Maps every success.”

Maps chair, Sir Hector Sants, added: “Caroline has demonstrated - both through her time as acting chief executive and in her previous roles - her understanding of and commitment to Maps’ vision, its customers, its people and its stakeholders throughout the UK.

Maps is an arm’s-length body, sponsored by the Department for Work and Pensions, which provides free financial guidance and appointments over the telephone, online and in person.

The organisation recently released its UK Strategy for Financial Wellbeing, a 10-year framework designed to drive widespread change and improve individuals’ personal finance.
