The head of HM Revenue & Customs has been named a dame in the Queen’s
Birthday honours list.
Lesley Strathie, chief executive and permanent secretary, was named a dame by
the Queen, while 16 other HMRC staff were awarded by the Queen.
Dame Lesley joined the civil service in 1971 as a clerical assistant in the
Department of Helath & Social Security. In 1984 she moved to London from
Scotland to work in the Unemployment Benefit Service, promoted to the senior
civil service in 2000.
She recently warned HMRC staff that efforts to turn around low morale would
be difficult and time-consuming.
