Two non-executive directors join Pensions Regulator

Secretary of State for Work and Pensions James Purnell has announced the appointments of Isabel Hudson and Bruce Rigby as non-executive directors of the Pensions Regulator.

The appointments start from today and will last for a period of four years.

Pensions Regulator chairman David Norgrove says: “I am delighted with the appointments of Isabel Hudson and Bruce Rigby and the breadth of experience they will bring to the Regulator.

“Their knowledge of pensions and of business will help us continue to develop the strategic direction of the Regulator; both during the current economic pressures and through to the impending reform of workplace pensions.”

Hudson says: “The pensions agenda is increasingly important – I am therefore very happy to be joining the Board of the Pensions Regulator and to have the opportunity to contribute to these issues.”

Rigby says: “I am delighted by this appointment. The role of the Pensions Regulator will be crucial over the next few years and I look forward to helping work through the significant challenges which lie ahead.”
