Fane Vave is the interim acting new chief executive officer (CEO) of the Fiji Revenue and Customs Service (FRCS).

Her appointment follows the annoucement by FRCS Board of the resignation of CEO, Visvanath Das.

Mr Das resigned for personal reasons and to explore new frontiers in his career, a statement said.

Chairperson of the board of directors Fay Yee expressed her appreciation to Mr Das his contributions to FRCS, while wishing him every success in his future endeavours.

“The Board has also announced the appointment of Director Corporate Services, Ms. Fane Vave as Interim Acting CEO, while the Board commences the process of identifying a suitable candidate to succeed Mr. Das as the Chief Executive Officer. Mr Das’ resignation was effective immediately.

He joined the Inland Revenue Service in July 1996.

His extensive experience in FRCS has been in audit for over 15 years before he became national manager debt, general manager taxation prior to his appointment as acting CEO and later confirmed CEO in October 2016.

During his tenure, he provided valuable leadership to the senior executive team and their teams, while expanding the organisational contribution to regional and international bodies such as Pacific Islands Tax Administrations Association (PITAA), Oceania Customs Organization (OCO), World Customs Organisation (WCO) and Commonwealth Association of Tax Administrations (CATA).

FRCS has made many notable strategic achievements under his leadership with the most significant being a shift to a “One Organisation, One Team and One Service Approach”.

He was also instrumental in the implementation of automation and systems to improve efficiency and revenue collection.
