LGPS – West Yorkshire: New Managing Director appointed

26 September 2022

West Yorkshire Pension Fund (WYPF) today announces that Euan Miller has joined to take up the role of Managing Director, succeeding Rodney Barton who is retiring after 12 years leading the organisation.

Euan joins WYPF in November 2022 from Greater Manchester Pension Fund (GMPF) where he was Assistant Director of Pensions, Funding and Business Development.

Kersten England, Chief Executive Bradford Council, said:

“The West Yorkshire Pension Fund based in Bradford Council administers pensions for a great number of organisations nationally. I am delighted to welcome Euan Miller into our organisation to fulfil this important and high profile role.”

Rodney Barton, Director WYPF, said:

“Euan Miller brings with him wide-ranging experience of pensions, scheme funding, risk management and pooling of investments, with GMPF being part of the Northern LGPS Pool. He has a deep understanding of the DB market in which we operate. Along with his background in Local Government he has the right credentials to lead WYPF in the next stage of its evolution.”

Euan Miller said:

“West Yorkshire Pension Fund has built a great reputation for achieving consistently strong investment returns and delivering first-class administration for its own members, employers and shared service administration partners. I feel honoured to be selected for the role of Managing Director and look forward to working with the WYPF team and all the wider stakeholders to build on the excellent work to date.”

Euan worked as a consulting actuary for KPMG and PwC advising the trustees and sponsors of a range of private sector defined benefit schemes prior to joining GMPF in 2014. Euan contributes to a number of industry groups, both in the LGPS and wider pensions market. These include the PLSA Local Authority Committee and previously chairing the Institute of Actuaries’ In-house Pensions Actuaries group.
