A former assistant commissioner of London’s Metropolitan Police Service has been announced as the next director of the U.K. Serious Fraud Office (SFO).

Nick Ephgrave will succeed Lisa Osofsky at the end of September for an initial five-year term.

Hopes are high his time in office will prove better than Osofsky’s, whose controversial tenure saw her failure to secure the prosecutions of several large companies and their directors (e.g., Tesco, G4S) and follow established legal procedure, resulting in the collapse of key cases (e.g., Serco, Unaoil).
