Dame Lin Homer, former chief executive of HMRC, has been appointed to the ICAS council as a public interest member.

Homer succeeds Judith Sischy, and will serve on the council for a four-year term. She will also join a number of ICAS council committees and operational boards.

Since stepping down as chief executive of HMRC in 2016 following more than four years in the positon, Homer has taken up a role on the governing body of the University of Birmingham. Speaking about her appointment to the ICAS council, she said: “My role is to ensure that ICAS fulfils its public interest responsibilities as set out in its Royal Charter.

“I will strive to ensure that the public interest remains at the heart of ICAS’ activities.

“During my time with HMRC I worked closely with all the accountancy bodies, including ICAS, and I look forward to working with members again to uphold the Institutes’ standards and values.”

Anton Colella, chief executive of ICAS, commented: “Dame Lin’s clear understanding and commitment to the safeguarding of the public interest will ensure that the interests of members and the public are kept at the forefront of our strategy and operations.

“Her appointment follows other key senior appointments of Public Interest Members to ICAS and makes a clear statement about our ambition and determination to ensure that our public interest remit is delivered to the very highest standards.

“We look forward to Dame Lin’s contribution on Council. Her perspective, skills and experience will be of great value.”
