UK - The National Association of Pension Funds (NAPF) has hired Darren Philp as director of policy from HM Treasury.

He replaces Nigel Peaple, who is set to join the Pensions Regulator (TPR) as head of corporate and international affairs.
Philp is currently team leader of the pensions and pensioners team at HMT, where he has been working for more than three years on pensions tax, regulation and pension policy, including NEST.

Prior to this, he worked on general insurance and European issues.
At the NAPF, he will lead a team of policy specialists and a senior researcher to "help generate the best possible conditions for workplace pensions in the UK".

He starts on 8 November.
Joanne Segars, NAPF chief executive, said: "Darren is bringing some invaluable experience and insights to this key role at the NAPF."
Peaple, who has already left the NAPF, will be responsible for TPR's media, external stakeholder and EU relations.

He was responsible for a wide range of pension policy issues at the NAPF, including the government's proposals on pension reform, the regulation of occupational pension schemes and pension investment.

Prior to this, he worked as the European policy manager at the ABI, as a senior consultant for a Brussels-based lobbying firm, and in the UK civil service.
