Auto-enrolment provider Now: Pensions has recruited Legal & General’s Adrian Boulding as director of policy.
Boulding, who will leave his post as L&G pensions strategy director in August, will take on the role in September. He will work one day per week for Now: Pensions in order to balance his other roles as a consultant to Dunstan Thomas and policy strategy director at Tisa.
Boulding has worked for L&G for 35 years and was one of three independent reviewers tasked with examining and improving auto-enrolment for the government in 2010.
Now: Pensions chief executive Morten Nilsson says: “As our membership grows, it’s becoming ever more important that our voice is being heard in Whitehall.
“Adrian was one of the first people I met when I came to the UK to establish Now: Pensions and I’ve always appreciated his insight and candour. I very much look forward to working with him.”
Boulding adds: “Now: Pensions is entering a hugely exciting phase in its growth as it prepares for a large influx of small and micro employers.
“From a standing start it’s made a significant dent in the market, going head to head with long established players with considerable success. Master trusts are playing an integral role in auto enrolment and it’s essential that their views, and those of their membership are represented amongst those with the influence to effect change.”
