Lorica appoints new heads of corporate pensions

Lorica Employee Benefits has appointed James Biggs head of corporate pensions and Sean Gilfeather head of corporate pensions – actuarial.

The changes enable Biggs and Gilfeather to work together to deliver Lorica’s overall corporate pension service to organisations and their employees.

Biggs was formerly with Jelf Employee Benefits where he headed up the defined contribution (DC) pensions team. Gilfeather is a qualified actuary with 15 years experience in pensions and employee benefits, including Towers Watson, PricewaterhouseCoopers, Buck Consultants and Aegon.

Rhys Francis, director of Lorica, said: “Many have experienced the enormous energy, enthusiasm and competence of Biggs.

“It is time to fully recognise this by enabling him to drive forward the defined contribution (DC) side of the corporate pension proposition and continue to build on the fantastic rapport that he has developed with all of his colleagues.

“Gilfeather continues to build the actuarial and risk management division which he has created from scratch in Feburary 2010. It is hugely satisfying to see our pension team strengthen so immeasurably.”
