Melanie McLaren, Executive Director Codes & Standards, said:
“Marian joins the FRC at an important time as we seek to influence international standard setters and policymakers across a range of corporate governance, accounting, audit and actuarial issues. Marian brings a broad range of experience in respect of financial services reporting, regulation and governance.”
Angus Bogle will work with Mridul Hegde, Executive Director, Strategy, to develop an enhanced engagement programme between the FRC and the investor community. He will also work with the FRC’s Codes & Standards team to ensure corporate governance and reporting meet investors’ needs.
Mridul Hegde, Executive Director, Strategy, said:
“Angus will be heavily involved in overseeing the FRC’s project to establish a clearer evidence base about the relationship between stewardship, corporate reporting and auditing, making clear the contribution to stewardship that should be made in each part of the investment chain.
