EUROPE - Robin Ellison (pictured), Klaus Stiefermann and Vincent Vandier have been elected as directors of the European Federation for Retirement Provision.
The decision was taken at the EFRP general assembly earlier this week where Wil Beckers was also re-elected for a new term as director. Previous directors Joachim Schwind and Peter Thompson have departed.
Jaap Maasen, chairman of the EFRP, said: “We look forward to working with them in promoting occupational pension provision throughout Europe.”
Ellison is the chairman of the NAPF, Stiefermann is the MD of the German Association for Company Pension Schemes and Vandier is the executive director of the French association of pension funds.
