Appointments update - 4 June 2020

Capita Pensions Consulting has hired Tim Rimmer as a senior corporate consultant.

The qualified actuary has more than two decades of experience, having advised both trustees and sponsors of defined benefit schemes and held senior positions at JLT, PwC and Just. Rimmer has worked with schemes ranging in size from very small to over a billion pounds and has a history of helping businesses reduce risk and manage costs through innovation and technology. Capita Pensions Consulting managing director, Stuart Heatley, said: “I am excited to welcome Tim to our team, he brings with him a wealth of experience advising both corporates and trustees and will help us to accelerate our growth plans as one of the leading pensions advisory practices in the UK.”

Brabners has appointed Caroline Curran as a new partner in its pensions team.

Curran joins from PwC’s Manchester office, where she was a director and head of pensions legal in the North as part of PwC’s 15-strong national pensions legal team, while she previously spent nine years in the pensions practice at Eversheds Sutherland. With Brabners’ pensions team having increased fee income by 85 per cent over the two-year period ending March 2020, Brabners managing partner, Nik White, remarked that Curran will be “crucial to the continued growth of our pensions practice”.

Redington has installed Kathryn Purves as non-executive chair of its board.

Purves currently holds a non-executive role at James Hay Partnership and Saunderson House, for whom she was also appointed as chair of the board in January this year, and is also a non-executive director and chair of the risk committee at Intermediate Capital Group. She served as CEO at IFG Group before sale of the business in 2019 and worked as chief risk officer and commercial director at Partnership Assurance between 2008 and 2015. Redington CEO, Mitesh Sheth, commented that these experiences made Purves the “perfect candidate” for her new role.
