The Department for Work and Pensions has appointed Museji Ahmed Takolia as chair of The Pensions Advisory Service.

Takolia, who will serve a four-year term and replaces Geoff Shanks, is also chair of Government auto-enrolment scheme Nest’s member panel.

TPAS provides pensions guidance over the phone and also delivers the Pension Wise service.

Pensions minister Ros Altmann says: “Museji brings a breadth of leadership experience across a range of public services and his insights into the pension landscape will be invaluable. I look forward to working with him.”

Takolia says: “I am delighted to be the next chair of TPAS. It is highly regarded nationally as a source of impartial guidance and information for pensions savers.

“I look forward to leading the board and helping TPAS both rise to the challenge of changes in the pensions landscape and to help lead the next phase of its growth and development.”
