Appointments update - 17 January 2023

Now Pensions has named Lizzy Holliday as director of public affairs and policy.

Holliday will be responsible for leading the public affairs and policy strategy for the business, and brings a wealth of experience to the role, having worked in pensions policy for over 15 years. She joins from the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP), where she led on significant policy changes to private pensions, including the development of new frameworks such as the master trust authorisation. She also previously completed a secondment at the Pensions and Lifetime Savings Association (PLSA) in 2019, where she oversaw the delivery and implementation of the Retirement Living Standards, along with the PLSA’s decumulation consultation and recommendations.

Sackers has promoted Emma Martin to senior counsel.

Martin, who focuses on defined contribution (DC) pensions, joined the firm in 2010 after qualification, and has experience advising occupational pension schemes, master trusts, personal pension providers and IGCs on all areas of DC work. In particular, recent experience includes at-retirement projects for schemes looking at “bolt on” arrangements with master trusts, master trust consolidation, and large-scale DC investment change projects. She previously completed a secondment to the legal team at The Pensions Regulator in 2015, where she advised on DC policy matters.

2020 Trustees has announced the appointment of Geoff Winn.

Winn, who will be linked to 2020 Trustees’ London office, joins from the Bank of England, where he worked as pensions manager for 12 years. Commenting on his appointment, Winn stated: “I’m excited and appreciative to be joining 20-20 Trustees at this time, with so many changes and improvements to pensions governance in the pipeline. To be working together as a team, and with so many pensions professionals I’m looking forward to being inclusive and being listened to by colleagues, rather than being the sole person in pensions!”
