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. He will be a great asset to the NAPF.”
Vidler says: “It’s been a great five years at Nest and I am 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 to join pensions consultant Hymans Robertson.
Keyte Financial Planners director Robin Keyte says: “It is natural that people who have worked for Nest will be attractive to third parties, who are likely to be able to offer more attractive remuneration
