UK - Barbara Judge has been named as the next chairman of the Pension Protection Fund (PPF).
Judge takes over from Lawrence Churchill, who has left the lifeboat fund to take the role of chairman at the NEST Corporation.
She will join the PPF from the UK Atomic Energy Authority, which she currently chairs. Judge's appointment will last three years, beginning on July 1 this year.
Pensions minister Angela Eagle said chairing the PPF was a "challenging role".
Judge added: "I am delighted to be appointed as chair of the PPF. The PPF is crucial in continuing to provide confidence and stability in pensions in the coming years and I am looking forward to having the opportunity to contribute to this important part of the pension protection system.
"This is a challenging role and I envisage using my experiences from both the public and private sectors, including my roles as deputy chair of the Friends Provident and as a non executive director of United Asset Management."
