Managing Directors attend Treasury Board meetings as a matter of course. Managing Director posts have always been at board level. The post of Director of Operations has attended the Board since its creation. The post of Director of Policy and Planning was created in July 2004 and became a full member of this Board in July 2005.

Details of individual postholders have been provided in the department’s annual reports.

There is no body known as the HM Treasury Executive Committee.
