Willis Tower Watson's (WTW) master trust LifeSight has appointed Jo Kite as UK managing director after Fiona Matthews was promoted to global head.
Kite (pictured above) was previously senior consultant and practice leader for WTW's Edinburgh team since 2013, but will now lead the UK arm of the master trust business.
Meanwhile, Matthews' (pictured below) promotion to the new role comes after LifeSight expanded into the Netherlands, Germany, Belgium, Ireland and South Africa. The company added it hopes to develop its international business even further.
The pair will start their roles on 1 October.
Matthews said Kite had the "ideal" experience to promote the UK-based master trust's future.
She said: "Jo is an experienced professional who has worked both as an adviser to trustees and companies, and as an expert in the design and delivery of defined contribution pensions and investment solutions.
"Jo has focused on employees' emerging needs up to and throughout retirement for many years and has the ideal background to lead LifeSight in the UK as it enters an exciting phase in its development, with a number of large new clients and responsibility for tens of thousands of pension scheme members and retirees."
Kite has over 20 years of experience in the pensions and insurance industry, having previous worked for Standard Life in various roles between 2001 and 2012. She entered the insurance market in 1996 as a pricing actuary at Aviva.
Matthews was previously managing director of retirement risk management solutions at WTW from 2008 to 2009. Prior to that, she was head of corporate development at Resolution from 2004 to 2008, and director of outsourcing at Royal SunAlliance from 1998 to 2004.
