The former PwC partner and ex-Friends Provident business risk director takes on responsibility for maintaining an effective framework of codes and standards.

She is joined by fellow new recruit Michelle Sansom, who has been appointed director of accounting. Currently project director at the ASB, the chartered accountant will help develop the FRC’s priorities on international accounting standards and on finalising changes to UK GAAP.
