Sally Bridgeland and Joyce Martindale have been elected as new members of the National Association of Pension Funds’ (NAPF) Investment Council.
Sally Bridgeland is CEO at BP Pension Trustees, while Joyce Martindale is head of Investment Implementation & Change within the Investment Team at the Railways Pension Scheme. They replace Gerry Degaute from Royal Mail Pensions Trustees and Peter Morris from Tameside Metropolitan Borough Council, who are retiring after having served on the Council for two terms.
Changes are effective from the Annual General Meeting (AGM) to be held at the NAPF Annual Conference in Liverpool on 8 October 2010.
Joanne Segars, Chief Executive at NAPF, said:
“I am delighted that Sally and Joyce have been elected as new members of NAPF’s Investment Council. With their outstanding experience in the pensions industry, they will bring new vigour to the Council at a challenging time for the world of pensions.”
The Investment Council is one of the main bodies through which NAPF develops policies on behalf of its members. Drawing its 19 members from within the pensions industry, the Council helps steer NAPF’s representational work to Government.
