Both appointments will take effect from 14 March 2021.
Grace Nesbitt will take over from Peter Price who has chaired the Board of Governance since 2016. Grace has been a member of the Board of Governance since 2018. Robert Tinlin is a new appointment to the Board of Governance. He will serve alongside Professor Russel Griggs OBE, who has also been reappointed as an independent member.
Lynn Pamment said:
“I welcome the decision of the States Assembly to appoint a new Chair and new independent member of the Board of Governance for the Office of the C&AG. I would like to thank Peter Price for his contribution as Chair of the Board of Governance since 2016. I look forward to working with the new Board when Grace and Robert take up their new roles on 14 March 2021.”
“The Board of Governance is a key means by which the C&AG is held to account for the public funds allocated to the Jersey Audit Office. The Board keeps under review whether the C&AG has used and is using the resources allocated properly, efficiently and effectively.”
