Godfrey will take over the reins on 22 June from Simon Brocklebank-Fowler, who becomes deputy chairman.

Godfrey said he would focus his two-year tenure on boosting group members, which currently number 450, and play a policy role in areas of regulation.

Also joining the committee are Penrose Financial associate director Mani Pillai, to deal with membership issues, and former investor relations society CEO Andrew Hawkins, taking the number to ten.
