PLSA chief executive Joanne Segars is to leave the PLSA after 10 years in the position.
Segars is to pursue a portfolio career and will remain in post until the end of June, completing some projects currently in train, continuing to act as the association’s ambassador to the wider world, while Julian Mund will continue to assume executive duties until a permanent successor is identified.
Segars leaves the association with a membership of more than 1,300 pension schemes, 20 million savers, £1trn in assets and 400 businesses providing services to the industry.
“I have enjoyed my time at the PLSA enormously, but after 12 years it is time to move on. I’ve been privileged to lead fantastic colleagues and members who work tirelessly to provide millions of people with better retirement incomes," Segars said.
“My proudest achievements have included creating the Pension Quality Mark, establishing the Pensions Infrastructure Platform, increasing the association’s income by 40 per cent and making our conferences and events the best in the industry. Working with the PLSA’s members I have given the association a new and wider focus, reflecting the realities of retirement saving today, culminating in the rebranding of the NAPF as the PLSA in 2015.”
