THE TAXMAN has appointed Nick Lodge, Ruth Owen and Jennie Grainger to its executive committee, filling the remaining roles.

Lodge is currently personal tax change director at HM Revenue & Customs, but will take on the role of director-general for benefits and credits for the next 15 months.

Owen will become director-general for personal tax after previously holding the works services directorship and deputy chief operating officer post.

Grainger will be made director-general of enforcement and compliance having previously been second commissioner at the Australian Tax Office.

The announcements follow the recent appointment of Edward Troup to the committee, with Troup and Lodge expected to start in August. Owen will join HMRC in September and Grainger is expected to be in her post by October.

Dave Hartnett, Mike Eland, Stephen Banyard and Steve Lamey are all retiring from their positions on the committee.

Lin Homer (pictured), chief executive of HMRC, said: "The new top team strikes an ideal balance between a fresh, outside perspective and deep understanding of tax and experience of HMRC's work."
