Capital Cranfield has appointed Moira Beckwith, John Nestor, Paul Black and Andy Scott as client directors and independent trustees.
Beckwith, Nestor and Black joined the firm on 1 January, while Scott will start in his role on 1 February.
The appointments come as the firm refocuses its expertise towards investment, due to a growing demand from clients for trustees with investment experience.
Beckwith had been vice president of benefits at GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) since 1995, where she was also a company-nominated trustee.
Black joins from Lane Clark & Peacock (LCP) where he was an investment partner, while Scott is a qualified actuary and previously a professional trustee and consultant for Punter Southall.
Nestor is also an independent trustee for a number of pension schemes and governance committees, including Prudential Assurance, RAC, and MCC. This year he will also take over as chair of the Society of Pension Professionals' investment committee.
The appointments return the firm's total number of client directors to 38 after others retired.
Managing director Neil McPherson said the appointments will boost the firm's offering.
"We are delighted that Moira, Paul, John and Andy have joined us at Capital Cranfield," he said. "These new appointments will ensure we can meet growing client demand while maintain the high standards of experience and skills we bring to our trustee appointments."
Black had been with LCP since 2005, with previous experience as head of investment consulting at Buck Consultants from 1999. He was also a senior consultant and actuary for Aon Consulting from 1988.
Scott left Punter Southall after 16 years with the firm. In 2009, he was also a caseworker for the Pension Protection Fund and the Financial Assistance Scheme. From 1998 to 2000, he was a partner at Hymans Robertson, and from 1988 to 1997, he was a senior consultant and actuary for Aon Consulting.
Nestor was an associate of City Noble from January to October last year, and was previously director of the Law Debenture Pension Trust from 2012 to 2015. He was also head of UK and Ireland at UBS Global Asset Management from 2010 to 2012.
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.
