Nest has appointed the chairs of the employer and member panels which will provide a link to the scheme’s trustee board.
Barnsley LIFT Company chairman Paul Jagger has been made chairman of the employer panel, while Intellicomm Solutions executive chairman Museji Takolia has been confirmed as chairman of the member panel.
Both Jagger and Takolia have significant experience in the education sector. Jagger was previously a regional director for the TUC, where he developed an education service for members. He has been involved in Government committees on further and higher education and is pro chancellor and chair of Council Bradford University.
Alongside his role at Intellicom Solutions, Takolia is non-executive chairman of OFSTED. He is also a former senior adviser at the Cabinet Office.
Member and employer education is expected to be a key task for Nest as it prepares to enrol its first members on a vol;untary basis in October this year.
Nest chairman Lawrence Churchill says: “The panels will play a critical role in ensuring Nest works for its members and their employers, and in helping us to make sure both employer and member voices are heard.”
The panel chairs will be involved in the selection of the first panel members. The maximum number for both panels, including chairs, is 15.
