UK - PIRC research director Stuart Bell has resigned from the corporate governance adviser after 14 years.
Bell said he was leaving the firm to “pursue writing on corporate accountability issues and other academic interests”.
However, it appears the high-profile post will remain vacant for the near future as PIRC corporate governance policy manager David Somerlinck said there were “no immediate” plans to find a replacement.
The move follows revelations that the Local Authority Pension Fund Forum had dropped PIRC as its manager and administrator and brought all operations in-house.
PIRC continues to provide research work on behalf of the LAPFF on a contractual basis.
