Chief finance officer will leave Revenue at end of March

Chief finance officer Stuart Cruickshank has decided to leave HMRC at the end of March. He intends to take up a portfolio of public and private roles.

Mr Cruickshank joined the Revenue in December 2006 as part of a Whitehall-wide drive to professionalise finance across Government. He had previously worked in the private sector, where he had held a number of CFO posts.

His remit at HMRC was to strengthen and re-focus the department's finance and planning functions.

Acting chairman Dave Hartnett said Stuart 'has been very successful', and added that he 'brought precision to budget management, and re-focused the finance and planning interface with the rest of the business'.

Mr Hartnett went on: 'We are hugely grateful to him for all he has done and will continue to do until he leaves us, and for the solid foundations he has created for his successor to take our transformation on to the next stage'.

The search for Mr Cruickshank's successor is expected to begin soon.
