Whiting takes non-exec role with HMRC

JOHN WHITING is to join HM Revenue & Customs as a non-executive director in April, stepping down from his role as tax policy director at the CIoT.

He will continue in his role as tax director at the Office of Tax Simplification and will remain involved with the CIoT.

Whiting – a former president of the institute – joined the CIoT in 2009 as tax policy director before assuming his role with the Office of Tax Simplification alongside his CIoT responsibilities in June 2010. Previously, he was a tax partner with PwC for 25 years. He was awarded an OBE in 2008 for his services to the tax profession.

Alongside Whiting, HMRC also appointed RWE Npower group chief executive Volker Beckers and former Wm Morrisons Supermarkets group HR and communications director Norman Pickavance as non-executive directors.

The three will take on the roles vacated by John Spence, who left last year, Phil Hodkinson, who will leave at the end of January, and Ian Barlow, who will become the lead non-executive director.

Exchequer secretary David Gauke said: “These appointments provide a rich mix of board-level experience. They have a lot to offer the HMRC board and will bring new and further capability and credible challenge to board discussions and to the new executive team.”
