Changes to NERC's Audit & Risk Assurance Committee membership

23 July 2015

NERC is pleased to announce the appointment of two new Audit & Risk Assurance Committee (ARAC) members, Mr Richard Gledhill (non-executive director on NERC Executive Board) and Professor Ian Poll (NERC Council member). It has also been confirmed that Professor Paul Monks will remain on the committee as an independent member when his NERC Council appointment ends on 31 July 2015.

Tracey Martin, an independent member, has decided to step down and ARAC members have expressed their sincere gratitude to Tracey for her contribution to the Committee.

In line with HM Treasury guidance regarding recruitment to Audit & Risk Assurance Committees, the existing NERC board members were approached to ensure that ARAC has the appropriate skills profile to meet its terms of reference, particularly experience in accountancy and risk management.
