Andrew Bailey, FCA chief executive, said he offers his condolences to Woodall’s family and provides a point of contact for those wishing to leave tributes.
Linda joined the Financial Services Authority (FSA) in 2001. During her time at the FSA and FCA Linda worked in a variety of disciplines across the organisations. She was appointed as a director in 2014 and will be remembered for the cross-sector work that she led on the aging population.
Andrew Bailey said: “I was deeply saddened by the news of Linda. She was such a good colleague, someone who was deeply committed to her work and the organisation.
“She did many things for the FSA and FCA most recently her work on ageing and financial conduct which was path breaking. She was hugely enthusiastic about such an important topic and I have met many people from CEOs to consumers who volunteered to me that they had sought Linda out to get the benefit of her thoughts and advice.
He added: “Our condolences are with Linda’s family.”
Linda’s family has asked that their privacy is respected at this difficult time but messages of condolence can be sent via the FCA: HR.Helpline@fca.org.uk
