Serious Fraud Office chief executive Phillippa Williamson has stepped down from the role.
She announced her departure last week just days before director Richard Alderman left on April 20.
Williamson says: “It has been a privilege to lead the SFO through a period of exceptional change during challenging times.
“I am proud to have worked with so many talented people both within the SFO and across the Government.”
Williamson has been in the role for almost four years. The SFO says she may not be replaced.
Alderman has been replaced by Crown Prosecution Service QC David Green.
Williamson received a salary of £150,000 with £27,600 in benefits in kind for travel and hotel costs arising from her commute from her home in the Lake District. She worked from home two days a week.
Alderman says: “I am very grateful for the crucial role Philippa has played in transforming the SFO. We could not have achieved all that we have without Phillippa’s leadership and commitment. Her drive has allowed us to deliver year-on-year improvements despite decreasing funding.”
