Hartnett, well-known in the tax world, will not become the new chief
executive of the body, however, with the role taken by Lesley Strathie, head of
Jobcentre Plus.

Both will work under Mike Clasper, the chairman and former boss at BAA.
Strathie is currently second permanent secretary at the Department for Work and
Pensions.

Hartnett said: ‘I am looking forward to working with Lesley in my new role
within HMRC. It is a great department with dedicated staff and we are all
determined to provide an even better service to all our customers.’

Strathie said: ‘This is a great opportunity for me to work in one of
Whitehall’s most important departments.’

Clasper said: ‘I am delighted to welcome Lesley Strathie to HMRC. She is an
inspirational leader and has an excellent track record for good management and
effective delivery.’
