Capita has appointed Stuart Heatley as the managing director of its pensions business to succeed Nigel Purveur.
Heatley has been at Capita for over five years, most recently as managing director of the firm's pensions consulting business. He has over 30 years of UK and European pension experience, having previously led the pensions and benefits administration business at Aon and worked in senior roles at Scottish Life.
He will take up the role on 1 October, succeeding Nigel Purveur who is retiring. As part of the transition plan, Purveur will remain at Capita for the rest of the year.
Commenting on his appointment, Heatley said; "I am really excited to be taking on the role of managing director of Capita Pensions. For the rest of this year and into 2021, we will be focusing on continuing to develop our service resilience and ensuring we are supporting our clients and their evolving pensions needs. We are embracing digital change by implementing a focused and ambitious digital roadmap, and we'll enhance operational excellence and create sustainability in our back office which will enable our success in the future."
Capital people solutions division executive officer Chantal Free added: "After a competitive recruitment process, it was clear that Stuart's background and experience was ideal to take our pensions business to the next level and focus on the next stage of our strategy which is around growth and digitisation. I would like to also thank Nigel for the tremendous job he has done in stabilising our business during a period of uncertainty. It was thanks to his hard work, leadership and commitment that our client and market confidence have grown, and our performance and culture have improved."
