Mund named PLSA boss

Mund named PLSA boss

The Pensions & Lifetime Savings Association (PLSA) has given acting chief executive Julian Mund the job on a permanent basis.

The former commercial services director took temporary charge of the association for pension professionals after Joanne Segars left last month.

It appears that he has impressed the board while minding the shop and takes up the role full time in August.

Mund (Pictured) joined the PLSA almost four years ago and commercial income has leapt 29% since.

The new chief executive said he is delighted to be taking the helm of an organisation that represents more than 1,300 pension schemes, 20 million savers and 400 service providers.

“As chief executive, I want us to champion and focus on the areas that matter most to our members and help us to provide a strong foundation for people’s retirement income,” he added.

“The PLSA has a dedicated and extremely capable workforce, and I am really looking forward to us driving the organisation forwards.”

Prior to joining the PLSA, he spent 16 years at the Chartered Institute of Public Finance and Accountancy, rising to the position of director of markets and product development.

The PLSA’s outgoing chair, Lesley Williams, said the appointment was the result of Mund meeting the criteria in the organisation’s succession plan.

“He has successfully led the PLSA team during a very uncertain time, ensuring stability and the continuity of our work,” she added.

Segars left the organisation in June to pursue a portfolio career. She has since been named non-executive chair of LGPS Central, which was established to manage £40bn of asset for nine government pension schemes in the Midlands.
