PMI names Branagh as president

The Pensions Management Institute (PMI) has unveiled Robert Branagh as its new president.

Branagh’s reign at the body that supports UK pension professionals started on 2 August.

He succeeds Kevin LeGrand, who stepped down from the role after two years.

Branagh (pictured) has 30 years of experience in the pension industry having worked for private equity-owned companies, charities and professional services firms. In the past four years he has held several trustee and non-executive director roles.

He joined the PMI in 2013, taking a seat on the board a year later. The role of vice president followed and he has chaired the board since 2015.

Branagh said LeGrand leaves a legacy of strong foundations for PMI’s future that he intends to build on.

“As the pensions industry becomes ever more digitalised and sophisticated within an uncertain economic environment, I look forward to working with the PMI team to continue its excellent work, raising professional standards across the UK through its wide range of activities, courses and events,” he added.

“With the challenges facing the pensions industry growing by the day, the role of the PMI in supporting, informing, and equipping trustees and pension professionals to carry out their roles has never been more important.”

PMI chief executive Gareth Tancred said the organisation’s position in the UK pensions industry relies on the quality of its staff and volunteers.

“Robert brings a wealth of experience serving both on the board, and now as president, ensuring continuity and clear guidance, as we face the ongoing challenges of the industry,” he added.
