Towers Watson has announced that Ann Flynn will join its UK defined contribution (DC) pensions consulting team as a senior consultant with responsibility for leading the team’s business development activities. Formerly an independent consultant, Ann ran her own consultancy practice after leaving Standard Life in 2013 where she was Head of Workplace Distribution Proposition. Prior to this Ann held business development, marketing and consultancy roles at a number of financial services organisations, including Scottish Widows and AEGON Scottish Equitable.
Kevin Stratford, head of UK DC consulting at Towers Watson said, “Ann is a very exciting hire for us as she combines over 20 years of industry experience with a strong focus on consultancy and business development. Our DC consultancy team has been very successful over the past few years and we are anticipating significant further growth, reflecting the interest in the new pension freedoms and following the release of our MyFitAge retirement planning modelling tools.”
Ann Flynn commented, “I am delighted to join Towers Watson and look forward to building on the success that its DC practice has achieved in recent years. The company has an excellent reputation in the industry and I know from my time working for pension providers that it has an unrivalled provider research capability, which I look forward to tapping into to help clients. I’m confident that my experience, particularly in building my own consultancy business, will add to the strong mix of skills we are able to offer clients.”
