Tom Lukic has been appointed as a director at Dalriada Trustees as part of plans to expand the business across the Midlands.
Lukic started work on 1 October to support the company's development across the Midlands, ahead of the opening of its new base in Birmingham today.
The new office adds to those already established in London, Bristol, Manchester, Glasgow and Belfast.
Director Brian Spence said: "We continue to grow and develop the Dalriada business to meet the needs of the evolving pensions landscape.
"Tom's appointment brings deep restructuring, transactional and covenant expertise to supplement the existing trustee team and further strengthens our client offering."
Spence added with the addition of Tom to the team, it can now offer further specialist trustee support, where the employer is faced with a transactional or restructuring situation.
Lukic commented: "I am delighted to be joining the team at Dalriada and very much looking forward to working with them and supporting our clients."
He joined from Ernst & Young, where he was a restructuring and covenant advisory partner in its Birmingham office for nearly 10 years, and prior to that was an assistant director for over five years.
Before that, he was a manager trainee at Arthur Andersen for nearly nine years.
