Industry veteran Bruce Rigby has been appointed as the chair of Prudential’s Independent Governance Committee (IGC).
Rigby has more than 40 years' experience in the industry and spent most of his career with Mercer where he held a variety of roles between 1979 and 2012, including as president of the company's global retirement business.
He is a former non-executive director at The Pensions Regulator and Baillie Gifford and a current director at the MMC UK Pension Fund.
Rigby will replace current IGC chair Lawrence Churchill and focus on key areas which will build on Churchill's work including ESG, investment pathways, customer communications and value for money.
M&G chief operating officer Roddy Thomson said: "We're pleased that Bruce has decided to take the helm of Prudential's IGC. His considerable industry experience will be important in continuing the IGCs work on behalf of our workplace pension members.
"I'd also like to take this opportunity to personally thank Lawrence for his dedication and commitment over the last five years. We wish him well for the future."
