Three Non-Executives join HMRC Board
Michael Hearty, Patricia Gallan and Paul Morton will work alongside lead non-executive Mervyn Walker and existing non-executive directors Juliette Scott, Simon Ricketts and Alice Maynard, bringing their knowledge and expertise to HMRC strategy and performance discussions and providing counsel and challenge to our Executive Committee.
Michael Hearty is an experienced accountant with extensive strategic and operational leadership experience as a Director General at the Department for Work and Pensions and the Department for Education. He was previously on the Board of the Welsh Government, advising the First Minister and the Finance Minister for Wales.
He is also a non-executive director or adviser with Public Health England, Blackpool Teaching Hospitals Foundation Trust and Lancashire and South Cumbria Integrated Care System.
So Michael steps up to become chair of the HMRC audit and risk committee, of which he was already a member, overseeing the financial performance and propriety of the department.
