Keith Skeoch: expected to take interim role

Standard Life Aberdeen’s outgoing CEO Keith Skeoch is expected to become interim chairman of the audit regulator.

Mr Skeoch will step in at the Financial Reporting Council (FRC) on a temporary basis following the sudden departure of Simon Dingemans in May.

Alok Sharma, the Business Secretary, is likely to announce Mr Skeoch’s appointment later this month, according to Sky News. Mr Skeoch has been on the watchdog’s board since March 2012

The change of leadership comes at a time when the FRC’s own future is still to be resolved.
