HMRC appoints Whiting as non-exec
HMRC has appointed a raft of new non-executive board members, including Office of Tax Simplification tax director John Whiting.
As part of its "ongoing governance arrangements", the Revenue also appointed former npower CEO Volker Beckers and HR leader Norman Pickavance to its board.
Whiting will take up his board position from 1 April 2013 and will chair the department's audit and risk committee.
The Revenue also announced two more board positions to the audit and risk committee: former tax partner at KPMG Leslie Ferrar and former FD of Ford UK Paul Smith.
The current lead non-executive is Ian Barlow, who worked for 37 years with KPMG London as a senior partner and took on the role last September.
