Appointments update – 7 October 2020

The Pensions and Lifetime Savings Association (PLSA) has named Zoe Alexander as chair of its master trust committee.

Alexander is director of strategy and corporate affairs at Nest and will chair the committee that sets the PLSA’s strategic direction on master trust policy and promotes and supports the development of the master trust market. Alexander commented: “I am excited and honoured to take on this role – it is critical master trusts are at the forefront of the debate about how the market should evolve, and I am looking forward to leading the committee as we continue supporting key developments including work to address the proliferation of small deferred pension pots and the pensions dashboard.”

Scottish Widows Master Trust board has completed its line-up with the appointment of Cheryl Black.

Black is a communications and engagement specialist and has more than 25 years’ experience in customer-focused roles at Scottish Water, Orange and O2. She was also previously vice-president of the Institute of Customer Service and is currently a non-executive director at UNUM Limited, a leading insurer in the employee benefits sector. Black’s addition completes the board’s new line-up, following the appointments earlier this month of industry experts David Butcher and Gerald Wellesley.

Dalriada Trustees has appointed Keith Hinds as a professional trustee.

Hinds was previously head of pensions advisory at Grant Thornton and brings over 35 years’ experience within restricting and pensions to his new role. He spent the last 16 years at Grant Thornton and has extensive experience across a broad range of substantial corporate transaction and pension scheme restructurings working with trustee boards to assess covenant and affordability, helping develop and shape scheme valuations and wider scheme strategy.
