Christina Bowyer has joined HR Trustees as a trustee director from Pinsent Masons.
She is the second trustee to join HR Trustees this year and has over 25 years' of experience in the industry.
Bowyer (pictured above) had worked at Pinsent Masons for nearly nine years where she was a senior associate in London.
Her experience includes working on pension scheme closures and mergers, employer covenant matters, parent company guarantees, scheme funding, buy-ins and buyouts and member benefit claims.

HR Trustees managing director Claire Teagle said: "This is the second new trustee director to be appointed this year and further strengthens the HRTL team. Christina will be a huge asset to our business and her appointment reflects both the strong growth which we have achieved over the last 12 months and our expectations for continuing increased demand for our services in the future."
