Royal Mail Pension Trustees appoints new chief executive

Royal Mail Pension Trustees has appointed Chris Hogg (pictured) chief executive.

Hogg, who was previously head of funding for the trustees, will succeed Gerry Degaute, who is retiring from the role.

Before joining the trustees in 2009, Hogg spent more than five years as a pensions consultant at Aon and three years in a similar role at KPMG.

Joanna Matthews, chair of the trustees, said: “[Hogg’s] skills and experience will ensure a consistently high level of service to the trustee board and allow for a seamless transition.

“The trustee board would also like to thank Gerry Degaute very much for his 25 years of service to the scheme, a period that has seen many significant developments and changes to the plan, culminating in the pensions agreement last year.”
