Appointments update 5 July

The Brunel Pension Partnership chief executive officer, Dawn Turner, has announced her resignation.

Turner has worked with Brunel for four years but indicated that Brunel needs a “different style of leadership” to take the organisation forward. She also plans to step down from Brunel completely by the end of September to transition into her portfolio career. The Brunel board will begin their recruitment process for its next CEO “soon”.

The Pension Protection Fund (PPF) has appointed Mike Ridley as its head of restructuring.

Ridley takes the newly created role after 30 years of experience at Barclays Bank, where he was a senior member of the bank’s business support team which specialised in high value distressed debt situation. He will join the PPF as an addition to its in-house restructuring and insolvency team.

Capital Cranfield has announced the appointment of Kevin Wesbroom as a professional trustee.

Wesbroom brings extensive experience as a pension consultant to his new role. He is currently a senior partner at Aon, where he has been for 44 years, most recently as a senior partner. He is also a finance trustee at the Thalidomide Trust and a council member of the Pension Policy Institute.
