Sackers senior associate Georgina Beechinor has been elected to chair the Pensions and Lifetime Savings Association's (PLSA) central London group.
She is only the second woman to hold the position in its 35-year history and was secretary to the group between 2012 and 2016.
Beechinor joined Sackers as a solicitor in 2001 and since January 2008 has been working in the firm's know-how team. She is responsible for monitoring, reporting on and responding to developments in legislation, case law and the pensions arena generally, as well as training and development for colleagues and clients. She currently focuses on workplace pensions reform, changes to the pension tax rules and progress of the revised Institutional and Occupational Retirement Provision (IORP II) Directive.
She said: "I'm very proud to be taking over as chair from David Astley and look forward to continuing to develop the role and the contribution that the central London group makes to the debate on retirement savings."
Six members of Ross Trustees’ pension trustee and support teams have been promoted into new roles.
Richard Butcher is set to spend another year as Pensions and Lifetime Savings Association (PLSA) chair as the trade body proposes his term is extended to autumn 2021.
