Barnett Waddingham's head of business development Adrian Cooper has left the consultancy to join TPT Retirement Solutions in a newly-created role.
At the defined benefit (DB) master trust, Cooper will lead a dedicated team focussed on promoting TPT's ‘DB complete' solution to sponsors and trustees, as part of a wider strategy to be one of the UK's leading DB consolidators.
Cooper has worked at Barnett Waddingham for almost six years, before which he held senior management roles at Constone, Sacker & Partners and Towers Perrin.
He is chairman of the Pensions and Lifetime Savings Association's Central London Group committee.
TPT chief executive Mike Ramsey said: "His extensive business development and marketing experience makes him a valuable addition to the organisation. TPT is well-positioned to be one of the UK's leading DB consolidators."
Cooper said: "I am looking forward to my new role at TPT and I am excited about taking ‘DB Complete' to new markets. It is a fantastic proposition and is the perfect solution for those DB schemes looking to generate substantial cost savings, strengthen governance and access award-winning administration and sophisticated investment expertise."
