Moret takes non-exec role

Intelligent Pensions non-executive chairman Maurice Paterson has retired from the firm’s board and been replaced by former Suffolk Life sales and marketing director John Moret.

Paterson has served as nonexecutive chairman at Intelligent Pensions since the company launched in 1998.

Moret runs his own consultancy business, More to Sipps. He recently took on a non-executive director role at Sipp provider Dentons.

Intelligent Pensions managing director Steve Patterson says: “On behalf of the board and shareholders at Intelligent Pensions, I would like to thank Maurice for his hard work and commitment over the past 14 years, particularly in the early years of establishing the company when his business acumen and industry knowledge were invaluable.

Syndaxi Chartered Financial Planners managing director Robert Reid says: “In John Moret, Intelligent Pensions has recruited one of the most experienced and knowledgeable people in the pension industry.”
