IRELAND - Anne Maher, chief executive officer of the Pensions Board will step down on 30 November after 10 years in the post.
She told Global Pensions she was keeping an open mind about future work plans, however she noted it would include a “mixture of things”, as opposed to any one thing going forward.
I've reached an age where I don't think I should be doing full time work,” she said. “I plan to do a bit of consultancy and a few other things, but it will be part time work rather than full time.”
The Pensions Board is currently advertising for a new CEO. A spokesperson said a replacement would be announced before year-end.
Established in 1990, The Pensions Board is the statutory body responsible for regulating occupational pension schemes and Personal Retirement Savings Accounts (PRSAs), and for advising the minister for social and family affairs on pension matters generally.
Reporting to the Board, the CEO’s principal accountabilities will include monitoring effective compliance with the requirements of pensions legislation, developing pensions policy for consideration by the Board, representing the Pensions Board and acting as its public face in its key external relationships.
