David Clarke is the new chair of the London-based watchdog the Fraud Advisory Panel. He takes over from David Kirk who steps down after four and a half years.
Mr Clarke is a former senior police officer who has served in the UK and overseas. He is now a specialist in counter-fraud measures at Today Advisory Services and has been a trustee director of the Panel for the last nine and a half years. During his law enforcement career David was responsible for designing and implementing the National Fraud Intelligence Bureau within the City of London Police, as part of the City force being the UK’s lead force for fraud.
David Clarke said: ‘I am incredibly honoured to become chairman of the Fraud Advisory Panel which has played an important role in shaping our collective response to fraud. As the corporate memory of the counter fraud community, I look forward to working with my esteemed colleagues, on the board and within the membership, to highlight, address, challenge and anticipate the fraud issues of our times.’
And David Kirk said: ‘It has been an enormous privilege, and a great pleasure, to lead the vital work of the Panel over the past four-and-a-half years. I know that the influence and the reputation of the Panel will continue to flourish under David Clarke’s excellent leadership. His senior experience in the criminal justice system, and his determination to make a positive difference in tackling fraud and financial crime wherever it is found, will build upon the Panel’s already considerable achievements.’
David Kirk will continue to be involved in the Panel as an active member and special adviser.
On February 19 the Panel is delivering on behalf of the Chartered Institute of Internal Auditors a one-day course on auditing fraud.
