A Question of Qualifications

A Question of Qualifications
A wee while ago on this site I noted that HMRC's interim chief financial officer, Philip Moore, was not a chartered accountant (although he is an actuary, 2004 government guidelines stipulate that all CFO's running government departments must be "professionally qualified").

Annyhoo, Moore has now left HMRC to join a defined benefit pension buyout company, Pension Corporation.

Moore's role has now been split between Simon Hopkins, HMRC's director of financial planning and analysis, and Jon Fundrey, financial controller (both of whom are chartered accountants).

Doesn't splitting the role lead to confusion and conflict?

Moore was appointed temporary CFO in January 2008. He will not be lonely at Pension Corporation, HMRC's former chairman (Sir Nicolas Montagu) is on the board there.

Tax does have to be taxing.
