PLSA appoints new Policy Committee members

03 May 2024

The PLSA has appointed 17 industry experts to its Policy Committees as the terms of some existing members come to an end.

The PLSA’s four Policy Committees focus on specific policy issues for Defined Contribution, Defined Benefit, Local Authority and Master Trust pensions, giving representation to PLSA members from these sectors in policy development. The Committees also play a vital role in advising the PLSA Policy Board, which guides and decides on the PLSA’s public policy positions. Each Committee meets three times a year and is chaired by a Policy Board member.

Joining the Defined Benefit Committee, chaired by SAUL Trustee Company’s Rob Orr, are TPT Chief Executive David Lane, Plumbing Pensions (UK) Administration’s Head of Operations Stephen Graham, Sackers’ Partner Philippa Connaughton and USS Head of Corporate Communications and External Relations Richard Williams.

Taking up roles on the Defined Contribution Committee, chaired by ZEDRA’s Joanne Fairburn, are Wealth at Work’s Head of New Business Sarah Long, Standard Life’s Head of Workplace Business-to-Business Proposition Craig Monahan, Rolls-Royce Group Head of Pensions and Benefits Fiona Brown and Kingfisher Pensions Director James Chemirmir.

Appointed to the Local Authority Committee, chaired by Surrey County Council’s Neil Mason, are South Yorkshire Pensions Authority’s Head of Paid Service George Graham, Kent Pension Fund’s Head of Pensions and Treasury Nick Buckland, East Sussex Pension Fund’s Head of Pensions Sian Kunert, West Sussex County Council’s Pension Strategist Rachel Wood and Lancashire County Council’s Head of Fund Sean Greene.

The Master Trust Committee, chaired by NEST’s Zoe Alexander, will see USS Head of Strategy and Insight Dean Blower, Head of the Aviva Master Trust Louise Williamson, Mercer’s UK DC Leader Suzanne Rose and Cushon’s Director of Policy and Research Steve Watson join the fold.

The full lists of Policy Board and Policy Committee members are available on the PLSA website.

John Chilman, Chair of the PLSA Policy Board said: “Our Policy Committees play a vital role in providing deep subject matter expertise on the policy and regulatory initiatives which impact our sector and, by providing a voice for the different segments of the pension landscape, help shape the policy agenda for retirement saving across the UK. Together with the rest of the PLSA team, I welcome the new Committee members and look forward to the fresh ideas and enthusiasm they will no doubt bring.”
