30 June 2018

The Financial Reporting Council (FRC) has today confirmed that Melanie Hind, Executive Director, Audit and Actuarial Regulation, is stepping down from her role to take up a family opportunity overseas.

Melanie joined the FRC in June 2012 and held the position of Executive Director, Codes and Standards before assuming her current role in April 2016. Melanie had a leading role in our work on codes and standards including the reform of UK GAAP and the development of the UK Corporate Governance Code. 

FRC Chief Executive, Stephen Haddrill, said:

“Melanie has made a major contribution toward the development of audit quality in the UK. She has steered the FRC’s Audit and Actuarial Division through a period of change, including becoming the UK’s competent authority for statutory audit. Melanie has also played a major role in ensuring the UK audit regime is a benchmark, admired internationally.

“In her previous role of Executive Director, Codes and Standards , Melanie led the transformation of UK accounting standards and groundbreaking developments of the UK Corporate Governance Code to promote more effective company stewardship.

“Her contribution to the FRC at Board and Executive level has also been significant. We wish her well for the future.”
