LONG-SERVING BBC executive Liz Rylatt has joined the ICAEW as its finance director.
Rylatt takes on the executive director, finance, operations, and members role after an eighteen-year career - which included senior finance and governance roles within the corporation.
She qualified with the ICAEW while at KPMG before serving in a number of retail sector roles.
The move is part of a shifting of responsibilities at the institute. Members and operations executive director Robin Fieth is leaving to join the Building Societies Association as its chief executive. Fieth had served as an executive director in charge of finance until 2011. Current finance director and non-board member is Andrew Fagg, who remains at the institute.
ICAEW chief executive Michael Izza said Rylatt's wealth of experience would support the ICAEW's strategic plans.
"During her time there, she has dealt with similar challenges to those facing ICAEW as we pursue our strategic goal of leading the global finance and accountancy profession," said Izza.
Rylatt said: "Having been a member for over 25 years, I have huge admiration for all that ICAEW achieves and am delighted to be joining such a prestigious organisation. I am looking forward to using my skills and knowledge in helping to deliver ICAEW's strategy as well as to getting out across the UK to meet fellow members."
She joins on 8 January 2014.
