UK - The National Association of Pension Funds (NAPF) has appointed Keith Hollander as business development director, a new role aimed to enhance its offering to members.
Hollender, who was previously managing director, investment and professional services, at Experian, said he would be looking to improve the overall value offered to members of the NAPF through its commercial activities such as conferences, publications and training courses.
Hollender, who was also a trustee director of the Experian Pension Scheme, founded the Unclaimed Assets Register in 1999, which reunites people with lost and forgotten savings and investments. He has also held managerial positions in the automotive industry and banking.
He said: “With the increasing complexity and interest in workplace pensions, especially in the defined contribution arena, my aim is to enhance the services that the NAPF provides for its members so it can remain at the forefront of the pensions industry.”
Joanne Seger, chief executive of the NAPF, said the appointment showed it was serious about further developing this area.
