Chris Hogg to step down as CEO of the National Grid UK Pension Scheme

10 June 2024

After six years in the role, Chris Hogg will be stepping down as Chief Executive of the National Grid UK Pension Scheme (NGUKPS) during the Summer.

Since joining the Scheme, Chris has led a transformation of NGUKPS’ governance structure and its support function, building a high-quality team and materially increasing the Trustees’ capacity to focus on key decisions as well as enhancing Sponsor/Trustee relations. He has driven an increased focus on risk management and, in conjunction with the Trustee Board and Sponsor has overseen de-risking which has significantly increased funding security.

Chris has recently led a project to outsource the onward provision of trustee executive support, providing valuable resourcing flexibility to the Scheme as it continues to mature.

Commenting, NGUKPS Chair, Chris Martin said:

“We are incredibly grateful for Chris’s leadership and support since joining the scheme as CEO in 2018 and would like to pass on our sincere thanks and gratitude for his stewardship during this period.

“The Trustees are delighted with the results that have been achieved and Chris leaves the Scheme in a strong position for its next phase, as it continues delivering and securing Members’ benefits. We wish Chris every success in his future endeavours.”

Commenting, outgoing NGUKPS CEO, Chris Hogg said:

“Since taking over as Chief Executive my focus has been on building the strongest possible foundation for the Scheme and best-in-class service for its Members.”

“Working with the Trustees, Sponsor and an exceptional support team, I’m very proud of what we have achieved during this period and look forward to seeing the Scheme continue to go from strength to strength over the coming years.”
