Professional Pensions senior correspondent James Phillips has been named trade pensions journalist of the year at the annual Society of Pension Professionals (SPP) dinner.
The award, which came as the SPP celebrated its 60th birthday, was decided in a vote by the SPP's membership and recognises outstanding contributions to pensions journalism this year.
The SPP is a representative body for occupational pension scheme advisers and providers and was launched in 1958 as the Society of Pension Consultants.
Commenting on his award, Phillips said: "I am both delighted and surprised to have won this award against a formidable crowd of trade pensions journalists. I am incredibly grateful to the SPP and its members for their support."
PP editor Jonathan Stapleton added: "I am hugely proud of James' achievement, which is testament to his talent as a journalist and all the hard work he puts in."
Professional Pensions is holding a breakfast briefing on engaging defined contribution (DC) members on 7 February.
Panellists at a PP webinar discuss October's High Court judgment on GMP equalisation, how schemes have responded, what their strategies should be, and how the industry can approach it.
