Director of government reporting joins public finance institute

The man who led the HM Treasury’s move from cash to accruals accounts has
joined the Chartered Institute of Public Finance and Accountancy as its new
policy and technical director.

Ian Carruthers led the Treasury program from its start in 1999 and built it
up to a 1,300 consolidated organisation encompassing all public sector
organisations

He spearheaded HM Treasury’s whole of government accounts program for all the
main tax streams, public service pensions and the government’s debt and currency
reserves.

Before this Carruthers, an ICAEW-qualified accountant, worked at
PricewaterhouseCoopers where he was audit manager for a range of public and
private sector clients and advised on numerous private finance initiative
projects.

CIPFA chief executive Steve Freer said: ‘I’m delighted to announce Ian’s
appointment. He brings with him a wealth of public and private sector
experience, with a particularly strong pedigree in central government through
his work at the Treasury.
