Andrew Warwick-Thompson to leave The Pensions Regulator
Thursday 11 May 2017
The Pensions Regulator (TPR) has confirmed that Andrew Warwick-Thompson will leave his post of Executive Director for Regulatory Policy and join LGPS Central as CEO.
Mr Warwick-Thompson joined the Board of TPR as an Executive Director in 2013 where he has been responsible for shaping regulatory policy across TPR’s defined benefit and defined contribution scheme work, including master trusts, and has overseen its risk and data functions.
Lesley Titcomb, Chief Executive of TPR said: “I want to congratulate Andrew on his new role and wish him all the best for the future. I know he will demonstrate the same energy and commitment we have benefited from at TPR over the last few years. We have a dedicated and expert team at TPR who will continue to shape policy which helps to protect members of workplace pension schemes.”
Mr Warwick-Thompson said: “I have hugely enjoyed my time at TPR, not least because of the calibre of people I have had the opportunity to work with. I know that the team of people I leave behind will continue to work with commitment and drive. I care deeply about making pensions work for people and will relish the opportunity to continue that work in my new role.”
Mr Warwick-Thompson will join LGPS Central in July and TPR will announce a successor in due course.
