The Government has recruited three additional trustees for Nest as the scheme prepares to launch to a handful of voluntary employers this year.
Pensions minister Steve Webb has confirmed the appointments of former Deloitte partner Iraj Amiri, Consumer Focus non-executive director Sharon Darcy and TUC head of campaigns and communications Nigel Stanley.
The appointments commenced on June 20 and will be for terms of five years. Each trustee member will receive a salary of £20,100 for a time commitment of 30 days a year.
Webb says: “Iraj, Sharon and Nigel bring vast experience of representing the interests of consumers and financial management, which will be hugely beneficial to the trustee of the Nest scheme.”
Amiri, Darcy and Stanley join existing chairman Lawrence Churchill and trustee members Tom Boardman, Laurie Edmans, Paul Hewitt, Chris Hitchen, Julius Pursaill and Sue Slipman on the scheme’s trustee board.
