“Robert Branagh has been appointed Chief Executive Officer, (CEO) of the London Pensions Fund Authority (LPFA) where he was Managing Director since joining in April 2018.
The appointment comes following the recruitment of the LPFA’s management team which now includes Peter Ballard, Director of Funding and Risk, Morenike Ajayi, Commercial and Finance Director and Alistair Peck, Member Engagement and Communications. It also follows the successful conclusion of pooling by LPP and the setting out of the new strategic direction for both the Pool and the Fund over the next 3 – 5 years.
According to John Preston, LPFA Chairman, “Robert’s new role reflects the next stage in the LPFA’s evolution. We have recruited a team of highly motivated colleagues to ensure that our organisation continues to deliver value for money, high quality customer service and meet our and LPP’s obligations to members and employers. While his day-to-day activities will largely continue, Robert will also lead on developing the LPFA’s strategic direction, supporting collaboration across the LGPS sector and raising our profile – particularly relating to our Responsible Investment and Sustainability aspirations – across the industry”.
