The Society of Pension Professionals (SPP) has named Paul McGlone as president, effective 1 June 2018.
McGlone, currently a partner at Aon Hewitt, will succeed outgoing president Hugh Nolan, and said he will aim to “stay relevant” with a “focus on new media channels” throughout his two-year term.
Having joined Aon Hewitt in 1991, McGlone qualified as an actuary in 1994 and has been advising trustees and companies for over 25 years.
McGlone said: “I would like to offer my sincere thanks to outgoing president Hugh Nolan for his outstanding commitment, hard work, and dedication to the society over the last two years.
“He has been a great advocate for the organisation at a time where the retirement savings industry has been undergoing immense amount of changes.”
McGlone said that Nolan has lead the pensions industry through a period of significant change and that he hopes to build on the his predecessor's progress.
He added: “The society exists solely for the benefit of our members, and to stay relevant in the industry we need to add value to those members and evolve how we do that.
“Over the coming years we are planning to focus on new media channels to reach new and existing members, and advance our already busy programme of evening meetings, seminars, dinner and conference we hold throughout the year.”
