The Society of Pension Professionals (SPP) has named James Riley as president for a two-year term beginning 1 June.
Riley is a partner at Isio - formerly the UK pensions advisory arm of KPMG - and succeeds Aon partner Paul McGlone in the role.
The SPP presidency focuses on continuing to increase value to members and assisting them to help their clients build a sustainable pensions future.
Riley is an experienced actuary and first joined the SPP as a council member in 2013. He spent a decade with KPMG prior to the relaunch of the pensions practice in January and is also a former consultant at Willis Towers Watson.
Riley said he will build on McGlone's work modernising the SPP and will closely support new chief executive Fred Emden over the course of the presidency.
He added: "We are keen to continue to develop new ways to continually increase the value we offer to our membership and help them support their clients through this unprecedented time due to Covid-19, but also defined benefit (DB) changes, including the revised DB funding code and changes to the Retail Prices Index, and building a sustainable defined contribution future by improving auto-enrolment and ESG standards."
Emden said: "It has not been long since my appointment and I am excited about how our combined fresh energy can build on all of the great work performed by the society to date."
Mads Gosvig has been named chief fiduciary officer for investments at RPMI Railpen, joining on 16 April.
The People’s Pension (TPP) has appointed Baroness Jeannie Drake and Mark Condron to its board of trustees.
