BBS Consultants and Actuaries has recruited Jenny Richards and Mark Channon.
Richards (pictured above), who was previously a consultant actuary at Punter Southall from 2012, joined in June.
Meanwhile, Channon (pictured below) moved to BBS from Mercer, where he was head of retirement of the firm's New Zealand business from 2014, in July.
They are both consulting actuaries at BBS.
The firm's director Michael Harvey said its services were strengthened by an expanding team.
"We are thrilled to welcome Jenny and Mark on board, both of whom bring a wealth of experience to further strengthen our actuarial and investment services," he said. "2016 has been a very exciting year for BBS so far, with a large number of new recruits across many areas of the business."
Prior to Punter Southall, Richards was a pensions consultant for Hewitt Associates from 2006 to 2012 before the merger with Aon Corporation to form Aon Hewitt. She also worked for Watson Wyatt from 2003 to 2006 prior to its merger with Towers Perrin to form Towers Watson, which is now Willis Towers Watson.
Channon had been at Mercer for 11 years, acting as a senior associate from 2012 to 2014, and an actuarial analyst from 2005 to 2012.
The firm said it now has 16 qualified actuaries, after existing employees Kylie Arbon and Julia Pardoe recently passed their final exams.
