UK - Judith Pettitt has been hired by pensions and IT consultancy Dunnett Shaw as a senior consultant.
Pettitt has worked within pensions administration for more than 14 years, initially in a third party environment with Mercer HR Consulting and HS Administration before moving on to become pensions administration manager at British Airways Pensions.
Following this, Pettitt returned to the outsourced environment working as a client manager for Hewitt Bacon & Woodrow.
Dunnett Shaw managing director Jocelyn Blackwell said: “Judith brings with her a wealth of pensions knowledge from her years in the industry, and has valuable understanding of the operation of administration both in the in-house environment and within third party administrators.”
PwC, KPMG, EY and Deloitte must break up their consultancy and audit businesses into distinct firms to provide greater focus on the "most challenging and objective audits", the competition watchdog has said.
The Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) has released its first batch of guidance setting out how the guaranteed minimum pension (GMP) conversion legislation may be used to resolve unequal payments.
