Nest communications director Graham Vidler leaves to join NAPF

Nest director of communications and engagement Graham Vidler has left the organisation to join the National Association of Pension Funds.

Vidler will take up the role of head of external affairs at the NAPF in late spring with responsibility for external affairs activity including policy, research, media and parliamentary affairs.

Prior to joining Nest five years ago, Vidler held roles including policy adviser at the Association of British Insurers and head of policy at Which?.

NAPF chief executive Joanne Segars says: “I am delighted Graham is joining the NAPF at this important time for the pensions industry. His expertise and enthusiasm for pensions matches our own priorities and those of our members. He will be a great asset to the NAPF.”

Vidler says: “It’s been a great five years at Nest and I’m hugely proud to have played a role in the creation of a major new pension scheme.”

Last week Nest managing director of customer and proposition John Taylor left the Government-backed pension scheme after just 12 months.

Taylor, who has been leading Nest’s engagement with advisers in recent months, has joined pensions consultant Hymans Robertson as head of delivery for its ‘Guided Outcomes’ proposition.
