Former high profile central banker Fiona Muldoon has been appointed a non-executive director at Bank of Ireland.

Ms Muldoon, who was the director of credit institutions and insurance supervision at the bank, announced her resignation in November 2013.

She has since moved to become group finance director at insurance group FBD.

But Bank of Ireland announced yesterday that she had joined its board.

Ms Muldoon hit the headlines in 2012 by comparing top bankers to unruly teenager for their failure to get on top of the mortgage crisis.

In a straight-talking address to the Irish Banking Federation conference in Dublin that year, Ms Muldoon warned of a lack of leadership in the sector.

Ms Muldoon compared her experience working in the insurance industry and also outside of Ireland for the last decade and said she felt the banking sector had "not necessarily been 'humbled'" by the crash.

Ms Muldoon was appointed as FBD's group finance director in January.

She took up the post in March, after the company formally announced its preliminary results for last year.

Ms Muldoon joined the Central Bank of Ireland from Canada Life where she held the position of chief financial officer.
