Research organisation The Pensions Policy Institute has appointed Chris Curry to succeed Niki Cleal as director.
Curry, who has been PPI research director for 11 years, will succeed Cleal when she steps down in June.
PPI chairman of council Michael Pomery says: “Chris Curry emerged from a very thorough selection process as the outstanding candidate and the PPI council is confident that he has the vision and experience to lead the PPI, building on the success of his predecessors in the role.”
Curry says: “With the UK pension system currently in transition, the need for a sound evidence base is as strong as ever and I look forward to leading the PPI as we continue to provide high quality and independent research and analysis.
“The PPI has gone from strength to strength under Niki Cleal’s guidance and I am confident that the PPI will continue to develop into the future.”
Informed Choice managing director Martin Bamford says: “The PPI does a lot of important pensions research, so it was important to appoint an experienced director. Chris Curry seems to fit the bill.”
