THE FINANCIAL REPORTING COUNCIL has recruited former PwC director Marian Williams as its codes and standards director.
Williams (pictured) was most recently director in financial services and assurance for the Big Four firm. She joined PwC in 2003 as a manager moving up to senior manager in 2005, before her promotion to director in 2011.
Melanie McLaren, executive director codes & standards, said: "Marian joins the FRC at an important time as we seek to influence international standard setters and policymakers across a range of corporate governance, accounting, audit and actuarial issues. Marian brings a broad range of experience in respect of financial services reporting, regulation and governance."
The FRC has also hired equities and investment specialist Angus Bogle as director of investor engagement. Bogle was most recently co-head of equities at Fidelity Worldwide Investment. Prior to that he worked as a consultant at Heartwood, and before that was MD of European equity syndicate and head of equity block trades Citi. He has also held senior roles at Schroder Securities and J.Henry Schroder & Co.
Mridul Hegde, executive director, strategy, said: "Angus will be heavily involved in overseeing the FRC's project to establish a clearer evidence base about the relationship between stewardship, corporate reporting and auditing, making clear the contribution to stewardship that should be made in each part of the investment chain. He has a wealth of experience in financial markets, including 25 years in blue chip investment organisations on both buy and sell-side."
