IRELAND - Phelim O'Reilly, general manager at the €400m Construction Federation Executive Pension Scheme (CFEPS), will become a partner at Attain Consulting.

O'Reilly, who has been the umbrella pension scheme's general manager for more than a decade, said Attain was an exciting company to be joining, praising the quality of its work.

"I've had a fine 11 years with the Construction Federation Executive Pension Scheme, and I've thoroughly enjoyed it, but I'm very much looking forward to working with Attain Consulting," he told IPE.

O'Reilly would not be drawn on his replacement as general manager of the construction pension scheme, only saying that interim arrangements were in place.

Prior to his time at CFEPS, O'Reilly worked for the Irish Pension Trust and was a partner at Mercer.

In the past, O'Reilly has been a supporter of defined contribution schemes, having several years ago spoken out in support of a pan-European pension fund for construction workers.
