The Chancellor of the Exchequer has announced that Bronwyn Curtis OBE has been re-appointed as a non-executive member of the OBR and Audit sub-Committee chair.

Bronwyn Curtis said:

“I am delighted to be re-appointed to the Oversight Board of the Office for Budget Responsibility. As we emerge from the pandemic, the role of the OBR will be increasingly important in ensuring the Government, and the wider public, have a reliable and independent source of expertise on the future of the public finances. It is a privilege to be part of the oversight of the OBR as it steps up to the challenge.”

Richard Hughes said:

“I am delighted that Bronwyn has agreed to serve another term as one of our two non-executive members and that the Chancellor has approved this. Bronwyn brings a wealth of expertise and experience as a private sector economist and has been an invaluable source of advice and guidance though these challenging times.”

Together with Sir Chris Kelly, Bronwyn will continue to oversee the governance and independence of the OBR.
