Head of the merged HM Revenue & Customs elected president of Chartered Management Institute

David Varney, executive chairman of HM Revenue & Customs, has been
elected as the new president of the Chartered Management Institute.

Varney succeeds Sir Paul Judge, chairman of the Royal Society of Arts, and
becomes the body’s 30th president since it was founded as the British Institute
of Management in 1947.

Varney joined the Shell Refining Company as personnel assistant in 1968 and
moved through the ranks within other Shell companies to become a director of
Shell International Petroleum in 1995 with responsibility for its oil products
business in Europe.

He has also served as chief executive of BG Group plc, where he steered the
company through a de-merger. In 2001, Varney became chairman of mmo2, with
responsibility for the management of the group’s operations, including corporate
governance and the growth of shareholder value.

On becoming president of the Institute, Varney said he had always believed
that the education and development of leaders and managers was of ‘paramount
importance’ to all UK organisations.

‘The challenge of raising awareness about what skills you need to be
considered a good manager is emotive and exciting, so I am particularly
delighted and honoured to serve as president of the CMI at this time’, he said.
