Paula Evans, head of pensions and benefits, UK and Ireland at Fujitsu, joined the organisation in May 2007.
“I joined to be the UK pensions manager, and over that time I have had responsibility for various things, such as global mobility,” she says.
Before Evans moved to an in-house role, she was a pensions consultant for several consultancies, including Hewitt Associates (now Aon Hewitt), HSBC Actuaries and Consultants, Hymans Robertson and Watson Wyatt (now Towers Watson).
In 2013, she was involved in reshaping three of Fujitsu’s final salary pension schemes, after the parent organisation invested £800 million into the UK business, which was then invested in pensions.
“It was something that positively touched the lives of more than 20,000 people, in terms of pensioner members,” she says. “It improved benefits security and it improved the company’s position as well.”
