Towers Watson adds to DC pensions consulting team

Towers Watson has appointed Andrew Cashmore and Martin Knight as DC consultants in its defined contribution (DC) pension consulting team in the north of England and Scotland.

Cashmore, who has more than 20 years’ experience in pensions, joins from Buck Consultants, where he worked for the past 15 years as senior benefits consultant.

Knight returns to Towers Watson from Aon Hewitt, where he was a senior consultant and part of the DC leadership team.

Richard Sweetman, head of DC consulting for the north of England and Scotland at Towers Watson, said: “We welcome both [Knight] and [Cashmore] to the team, at what is a very busy time for our employer and trustee clients, grappling with auto-enrolment and the increasing regulatory focus on DC.”
