RPMI Railpen announces CEO departure

RPMI Railpen has announced that its chief executive officer (CEO), Phil Willcock, is to depart the company after 10 months in the role.

Willcock, who was CEO of both RPMI and RPMI Railpen, is leaving to become the CEO of AIG UK Life Ltd.

RPMI chairman Babloo Ramamurthy will be supporting the railways pension scheme trustee in the process of appointing a new CEO.

Commenting on the departure, Ramamurthy said: “We would like to thank Phil for his contribution during his time as chief executive.

“We will be seeking to recruit a high calibre successor who will help deliver RPMI’s mission of paying members’ pensions securely, affordably and sustainably and provide support to the trustee of the railways pension scheme.”

Willcock joined RPMI in February 2018, taking over from Chris Hitchen who had been in the role for 13 years.
