The UK Financial Reporting Council (FRC) has appointed Michelle Sansom as director of accounting and Melanie McLaren as executive director of codes and standards.
Sanson begins her role in April and will lead the development of FRC’s priorities on international accounting standards and on finalising changes to UK GAAP. McLaren, who begins her role in June, will be responsible for maintaining an effective framework of UK codes and standards, including accounting and reporting standards.
FRC chief executive Stephen Haddrill said the appointments are important for the maintenance of an effective framework of UK codes and standards, including accounting and reporting standards.
“Together, they will play a lead role in seeking to influence the development of IFRS,” he said.
