FRC appoints interim chairman following Dame Mills' death

John Kellas will be interim chairman of the Professional Oversight Board following the sudden death of Dame Barbara Mills

JOHN KELLAS has been appointed interim chairman of the Professional Oversight Board following the unexpected death of Dame Barbara Mills.

Dame Barbara, 70, died earlier this month after suffering a stroke. As well has her role at the Financial Reporting Council, she was the first female director of public prosecutions and head of the Crown Prosecution Service.

FRC chairman Baroness Hogg (pictured) said the board was fortunate to have someone with the experience and expertise to take on the chairmanship in difficult circumstances.

“John will be a strong and independent advocate of audit quality. He brings a deep technical understanding of auditing issues as well as recent experience of leading the International Auditing and Assurance Standards Board,” she concluded.
