Actuarial services company Hazell Carr has made three new appointments as part of its preparation to enter the pensions consultancy market.
Robin von Holdt is to become pensions consulting business manager, Michael Rudge joins the firm as head of branch development and Roger Hunt is taking over as head of IT.
Von Holdt is moving from William M Mercer, where he was a consultant and member of the board. His experience includes setting up and running pension consultancies in South Africa.
Rudge joins following a career as a senior consultant at Watson Wyatt and has also held positions at Old Mutual and Providence Capital. He will work at Carr's London and Abingdon offices.
Hunt, an actuary, was an executive director (systems) at Zurich Financial Services until 1999 and has since been a consultant to a number of financial services companies.
Hazell Carr director Graham Hazell says: “These three appointments represent key steps towards completing our preparation for the move into the pension consultancy market.
“Robin and Michael are both highly regarded entrepreneurs with commercial expertise and, as technology is at the forefront of what we do, Roger's input will be vital.”
