Bacon & Woodrow bolsters DC team

UK – Consultant Bacon & Woodrow has made a slew of new appointments to its defined contribution (DC) pensions practice, as part of a restructuring plan of its employee benefits practice following on from last year’s merger with US advisory group Hewitt Associates.

Kim Gubler, formerly of The Pensions Trust will take up the role of head of defined contribution research.
Gubler has 13 years experience in the pensions industry specialising as a business planner in strategy and research, particularly on stakeholder pensions and new channel development.

Chris Horn joins as a senior consultant from Sedgwick Noble Lowndes and Stephen Bowles, an administration expert, moves from fund manager Fidelity.
Bowles worked most recently on the delivery of administrative services for Fidelity’s DC product.
Horn has previously worked on advising US clients about UK benefit arrangements and has over 30 years of consultancy experience.

“ The impact of stakeholder pensions and rapidly expanding e-commerce consulting opportunities have given us tremendous scope for growth this year. We are always on the look out for talented new team members and the merger with Hewitt gives us the chance to take a strategic overview and press ahead with expansion plans,” comments Lee Jagger at Bacon & Woodrow.
