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.”
A handful of industry heavyweights have begun trialling a so-called 'mid-life MOT', with positive initial results reported by all those involved.
The Pensions and Lifetime Savings Association (PLSA) has announced it will shrink its board by more than one-third as part of a governance overhaul to make it "agile and more appropriate".
Smaller FTSE 350 defined benefit (DB) schemes were nearly 15 percentage points less well-funded than larger schemes in 2017, according to a Goldman Sachs Asset Management (GSAM) analysis.
