ACCA’s public sector policy head takes on broader role

ACCA head of public sector policy Alex Metcalfe has taken on a broader role, becoming ACCA’s head of public sector.

Metcalfe’s new role will see him lead on ACCA’s public sector strategy while also continuing to oversee the organisation’s public sector research and thought leadership. Metcalfe will build and maintain ACCA’s key contacts in the public sector, including policymakers within government and with international organisations.

ACCA market director, partnerships and recognition, Stephen Shields said: “Alex brings a wealth of experience and expertise to this role, which unifies ACCA’s public sector work to inform policy, create insightful research, build and sustain stakeholder engagement, and work with ACCA members who advocate for the public sector. All these activities are inter-related, and so with Alex in place, we have the expert to bring it all together to create a consistent approach.”

Commenting on his appointment, Metcalfe said: “An efficient and effective public sector is fundamental to a thriving society. I am eager to work with ACCA’s network of public sector organisations, as well as our 67,000 members and students working in the public sector, to share good practices and insights in public financial management and to work together in the public interest.”
