Ex-Standard Life workplace pension chief joins Towers Watson


Risk management and consultancy firm Towers Watson has appointed Ann Flynn as a senior consultant in its UK defined contribution pensions team.

Flynn was formerly head of workplace distribution proposition at Standard Life but left in 2013 to set up an independent consultancy.

She previously held business development, marketing and consultancy roles at Scottish Widows and Aegon.

Towers Watson head of UK DC consulting Kevin Stratford says: “Our DC consultancy team has been very successful over the past few years and we are anticipating significant further growth, reflecting the interest in the new pension freedoms and following the release of our MyFitAge retirement planning modelling tools.”

Flynn says: “I’m confident that my experience, particularly in building my own consultancy business, will add to the strong mix of skills we are able to offer clients.”

In June Towers Watson revealed it is to merge with insurance and reinsurance broker Willis Group in a deal worth around £11bn.
