UK - The National Association of Pension Funds has hired the former managing director of Cahoot to the new role of chief executive of its corporate governance, research and voting service (RREV).
Timothy Sawyer (pictured) has been given the responsibility of overseeing RREV, a joint initiative of the NAPF and Institutional Shareholders Service (ISS).
Sawyer joined Cahoot, part of Abbey National Plc. in 1999 as business development and marketing director, becoming managing director in 2003. Prior to that, he was at Abbey National for eight years and spent seven years at Lloyds Bank Plc.
NAPF chief executive Christine Farnish said: “In its first year, the company has established itself as a market leader on corporate governance issues, and has played a central role in building constructive relations between institutional investors and the corporate sector.
“We are delighted that Tim will be joining us to lead the next phase of RREV’s development.”
Sawyer said: “This is an exciting time to be joining RREV, which has already established an enviable reputation as a leading player in the corporate governance arena. I look forward to working with the RREV team in building on this success, and on further strengthening the links between institutional investors and the corporate sector.”
