Ruth Stanier appointed director for customs and indirect tax at HMRC

HMRC has appointed director for customs and indirect tax Ruth Stanier as its new director general of customer strategy and tax design.

Stanier will take over her new role from interim director general David Richardson on his planned retirement later this summer.

Stanier said: "I know first-hand what important work our group does every day to help create the best possible tax, customs and payment systems for the UK. HMRC’s work to raise revenue to fund vital public services is hugely motivating to me.

“I’m keen that over the months ahead we go further in bringing customer insight to the heart of all our work on policy and design, and continue to strengthen our policy partnership with HM Treasury."

She joined HMRC as director of indirect tax in March 2016, and has led on customs and indirect tax since early 2017. Since joining the Civil Service in the 1990s, she has led a range of policy work in different departments including the Department for Communities and Local Government (DCLG), the Department for Transport and the Department of Health.
