Andy Flynn and Jonathan Hight-Warbuton have been appointed to Xafinity's National Pension Trust to strengthen its defined contribution (DC) team.
Flynn started work at the master trust in November as head of DC communications, joining from Zurich, where he was a workplace onsite marketing manager for over two years.
Hight-Warbuton joined in October as bid manager from Xerox where he was a senior commercial contracts executive.
National Pension Trust head Dave Hodges said: "The pensions industry has changed beyond recognition over the past few decades. Firms wanting to offer the full range of freedom and choice are looking to partner with those that can provide high levels of governance, and can reduce costs."
He added Flynn and Hight-Warbuton will help to deliver its leading service and product offering to more firms and their members.
Prior to his most recent role at Zurich, Flynn was the firm's head of corporate savings communications from 2005 to 2015. He was campaign manager for Prudential Assurance from 2002 to 2005, and a product manager at AXA for nearly three years prior, from 1999.
Meanwhile, before starting his most recent role at Xerox in 2015, Hight-Warbuton was a client manager at then Buck Consultants at Xerox for nearly eight years, from 2007. Xerox and Buck Consultants split in January and the latter became part of the rebranded Conduent HR services.
Hight-Warbuton said: "Clients need help and guidance on what to offer their members in the most cost effective manner. I look forward to working with National Pension Trust as the demand for leading master trust solutions continues to grow."
Flynn added member education, engagement and empowerment are vital in today's pension world to help people understand and achieve the outcome they are seeking.
"I look forward to continuing to develop National Pension Trust's strategy to offer a market leading package to firms and their members."
Six members of Ross Trustees’ pension trustee and support teams have been promoted into new roles.
