Former Nest chairman Lawrence Churchill has been appointed chair of influential think-tank the Pensions Policy Institute.

Churchill succeeds Michael Pomery as chairman of the PPI council from June 2016.

He was previously chair of Government scheme Nest and the Pension Protection Fund and held chief executive roles at NatWest Life, Unum and Zurich’s UK, Irish and international life business.

He is also a trustee of the International Longevity Centre UK and Age UK.

PPI president Baroness Sally Greengross OBE says: “Lawrence brings a wealth of knowledge and relevant experience to the role. I am confident that the PPI will continue to make a significant contribution to the policy debate on pensions and retirement income provision.”

Churchill says: “Pensions policy in the UK is at an exciting time with the freedom and choice reforms, the developing recognition of the impact of demographic change, and auto-enrolment driving up participation rates to their highest ever, combining to set new policy challenges for the future.”
