Tim Smith leaves FSA

Tim Smith will be stepping down from his role as chief executive of the Food Standards Agency (FSA) at 5pm this afternoon (22 August), the Agency has announced.

FSA officials said Smith had secured a new role in the private sector, and had agreed to step back from his responsibilities as FSA chief executive to “avoid any perceptions of conflict of interest”.

Professor Charles Milne, director of FSA Scotland, will be acting chief executive and accounting officer until the newly appointed chief executive, Catherine Brown, takes up the role on 16 October.
