Susan Martin, former chief executive of Local Pensions Partnership (LPP), has joined the board of LGPS Central as a non-executive director.
In her new role, Martin will support LGPS Central, which manages the pooled assets of eight Midlands-based pension schemes, with the transitions of assets into the pooled fund.
Martin resigned from LPP in May last year, having spent almost three years at the helm of the £18bn pool.
“This is an important time for the local authority pensions industry as the pools continue to grow and transition more assets to the benefit of their partner funds. I hope to add real value to the excellent work that has already begun at LGPS Central,” Martin said.
In addition to her role at Central, she sits on the board of Town and Country Housing and is an executive coach.
Prior to joining LPP, she held multiple senior roles at the London Pension Fund Authority, including more than two years as chief executive.
She has also held director roles at Greenstone Consulting, Queen Victoria Hospital NHS Foundation Trust and Cancer Research UK.
