The Government has appointed former banker Mark Boyle as chairman of The Pensions Regulator.
Boyle, who has held senior roles at Lloyds Bank and Kleinwort Benson, will succeed Michael O’Higgins in the role from 1 April.
Boyle is currently non-executive chairman of HM Land Registry and was previously director and chief operating officer of the Shareholder Executive, part of the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills.
Pensions minister Steve Webb says: “Mark is a proven leader who brings a wealth of private and public sector experience to the role and I look forward to working with him.
“I would like to thank Michael O’Higgins for the work he has done in this role over the last three years. Michael has successfully overseen major initiatives including the launch of automatic enrolment and I wish him every success for the future.”
