This year, Professional Pensions is holding the 20th UK Pensions Awards and we need YOUR help to find the people who have made the greatest contribution to the industry over that time…
To mark the anniversary, we have included a special award - the Greatest Single Contribution to Occupational Pensions 1998-2017 - to recognise the individual who has done the most to advance the cause of occupational pensions over the past two decades.
This accolade will replace the Pensions Personality of the Year Award for this year.
The PP editorial team have been speaking to trustees, scheme managers and people from around the industry and have already received a large number of nominations for the accolade (see below).
But we are still accepting nominations until 12 noon on Friday 24th March.
Should you wish to nominate anyone for this accolade, please send an email to [email protected], including the name of the person you wish to nominate along with a citation of no more than 140 characters explaining what the nominee has done over the past 20 years to deserve the award.
The initial longlist for this accolade so far is as follows:
- Ros Altmann
- Ronnie Bowie
- Jeannie Drake
- Robin Ellison
- Frank Field
- Kevin LeGrand
- Malcolm McLean
- Alan Pickering
- Paul Myners
- Joanne Segars
- Margaret Snowdon
- Adair Turner
- Adrian Waddingham
- Steve Webb
After nominations close on 24th March, we will conduct an industry-wide poll to create a shortlist of candidates.
The final winner will be decided by a vote at the UK Pensions Awards, which will be held on 4 May at the Grosvenor House Hotel in London.
