Actuarial consultancy Barnett Waddingham has added three new partners to its leadership – Andy Greig, Simon Rusling and Stuart Harrison – and promoted fifteen advisors to associate.
Andy Greig joined Barnett Waddingham’s pension administration team in February 2000. His expertise revolves around pension administration, new scheme implementations and pooled banking services. He plays a key role in business development in the firm’s pension administration business, and is also responsible for the administration teams across defined benefit and defined contribution pension schemes at Barnett Waddingham’s Bromsgrove office. “Greig's experience and proactive approach provides our clients with a high quality and reliable administration service,” according to Barnett Waddingham.
Simon Rusling is the head of marketing and has overall responsibility for the planning, creation and delivery of marketing strategies to support the ongoing development and growth of the firm across all markets. Rusling has been at Barnett Waddingham since 2008, previously serving Garvins Malvern Hills District Council, and leads the firm's central Marketing team which delivers a wide range of marketing activities including communications and PR, event management, research and insight, brand management and design, and new business support. He works closely with partners across the business.
Stuart Harrison joined Barnett Waddingham in 2011 from Big Four PwC. He advises a range of trustee and corporate clients on investments, including asset strategy, risk reduction and manager selection. Harrison has experience of a wide range of investment and actuarial work including strategic advice, liability hedging and long-term de-risking. Stuart previously spent over 10 years with PwC (at the time still known as PricewaterhouseCoopers).
Nick Salter, senior partner at Barnett Waddingham, says the partner additions reflect the firm’s ambition to continue its business growth. With a team of over 60 partners and 660 staff, based in 7 locations around the UK, Barnett Waddingham is one of UK’s largest providers of actuarial, administration and pension consultancy services, and looking ahead, Salter says the firm’s leadership is eyeing further expansion. “The new partners will ensure we continue on the current path of success.”
He adds that the promotions of all three new partners is reflective of “their hard work and dedication” to the firm. “They are fully committed to the firm’s culture of delivering high quality work and support for our clients in the dynamic working environment that the firm provides.” In July last year Barnett Waddingham also promoted three new partners (Sue Foley, Gavin Markham and Oliver McCulloch).
In addition, Barnett Waddingham also promoted 15 advisors to associate, building on the nine associates added in August last year. The associates are spread across its business units, with three added in Investment Consulting (Angus Scorgie, David Moreton, Sonia Kataora), four in Pension Administration (Collette Graham, Heather Peters, Fiona Rumsby, Tom Cowley Tom Prime) and three in Trustee Consulting (Geoff Howard, Mike Lawson, Nilesh Shah). The service lines SIPP & SSAS (Andy Leggett), Workplace Health and Wealth (Julia Turney), Public Sector (Roisin McGuire) and Corporate Consulting (Tom Hargreaves) each saw one associate added to its ranks.
