UK - The Society of Pension Consultants (SPC) has appointed James Hodge as its new chairman.
Hodge replaced David Miers, who held the position for more than eight years.
Hodge said he had taken up the role at a time when pensions was at the centre of public debate. "And rightly so, because what is involved is of vital importance to everyone," he said.
“I look forward to working with the SPC team further to ensure that the key issues involved are presented to, and understood by, all stakeholders – including the government. Because pension decisions taken today will resonate well into the future, it’s vital that decision-takers are well-informed.”
Hodge, a former British diplomat, spent his 37-year foreign office career concentrating on trade and economic issues.
