UK - Hazell Carr Pensions Consulting has made John Reeve chief operating officer for its pension servicing operation in Reading.
Reeve has spent the past 14 years with Aon/Godwins, most recently as director responsible for UK pension administration. Prior to that he was an actuary with Prudential for nine years.
Hazell Carr’s financial services partnership team has also been joined by Dennis Markey who becomes head of operations in Newport and Ian Mitchell as operations manager for Stirling.
Markey joins from Capita where he was a director in the business services division for almost six years.
Mitchell has spent the past year working for Hazell Carr directing a high–profile project. Previously he spent 14 years with Scottish Amicable in a range of management roles.
He will now work closely with Hazell Carr’s Eddie McGuire in the firm’s new Scottish office to establish a service facility dedicated to the Scottish pensions and insurance industry.
Hazell Carr Pensions Consulting director Ian Michael Rudge said: “It is vital to Hazell Carr’s strategic growth that we continue to strengthen our network with the best people on the market.”
