UK - Raj Mody (pictured) has joined PricewaterhouseCoopers as a partner in its UK pensions practice, having spent many years with Hewitt Associates.
Mody will be responsible for leading the PWC’s pensions relationships with a number of major clients.
PWC said Mody’s appointment was a part of a major expansion programme for the firm’s multi-disciplinary UK pensions practice.
That programme was being fuelled by increased demand for pensions specialists who could offer wider business skills and commercial acumen, as companies grappled with the impact that pensions were having on so many areas of corporate life.
Prior to joining PWC, Mody held a number of leadership and senior consulting positions at Hewitt Associates over the years, advising major UK and multinational organisations.
