The Pensions Regulator’s DC head June Mulroy to leave

The Pensions Regulator’s head of defined-contribution June Mulroy is leaving her post in January next year.

Mulroy has led the regulator’s efforts to improve standards in DC schemes over the past year.

She says: “My time at the regulator has been both hugely challenging and enjoyable. I am proud to have played a role in the development of the regulator’s approach to the defined-benefit funding and security and, most recently, to DC schemes.”

Mulroy joined the organisation in 2005 as it transitioned from the Occupational Pensions Regulatory Authority to The Pensions Regulator.

She spent six years as the regulator’s director for business delivery, with responsibility for the regulator’s casework teams dealing with the funding of defined-benefit pensions, as well as governance and administration issues in DB and DC schemes.
