Deloitte appoints new national defined contribution and employee benefits business leader
28 September 2015
Deloitte, the business advisory firm, has appointed Will Aitken as leader of its national defined contribution (DC) and employee benefits business.
Aitken joins with over 20 years’ consultancy experience in the DC and wider pensions market, and will lead and expand Deloitte’s pensions and reward business in London.
He said: “Freedoms and the introduction of annuity flexibility, has shaken up UK pensions in recent years, and benefit provision ranks high on the list of trustee concerns. Given the industry is demanding far greater information, Deloitte offers an established team of experts, providing pension and reward specialists in every area. I look forward to joining the team, and bringing the best of Deloitte to address trustee and corporate clients’ DC pension and benefit issues.”
Deloitte pensions partner, Andy Mewis, said: “Will is an established consultant and figure in the DC pensions world. His appointment is reflective of our growth ambitions in the DC and wider employee benefits space. We believe that the challenges of freedom and flexibility and the possible impacts of the current tax relief consultation will leave clients wanting to look again at their benefit provision. The capability and strength of our team, bolstered by Will, means that we are ideally placed to assist.”
Will joins Deloitte as the third senior hire for the pensions and total rewards business this year. He follows the appointment of Marian Elliott, head of Deloitte’s trustee advisory services in London, and Daniel Hibbert, director in the London-based reward consultancy practice.
