What our clients say: testimonials

Alan worked with Aviva during a strategic review of our offering to the Corporate Pensions market during 2012/13. Alan was recommended to Aviva due to his wealth of trust based pensions knowledge and contacts in the industry, both of which I can attest to. Alan was charged with and delivered:

• A full review (historic and future) of the trust-based pensions market.
• A detailed definition of several trust-based products and propositions.

To achieve this, Alan worked with a large project team consisting of consultants, contractors and permanent members of staff in a high pressure environment. Alan worked very well with the team, forging links into the wider business such as operations to ensure he had the full facts to hand and was able to bring the business with him which guaranteed that his work was always fully supported. In addition, Alan used his wide industry contacts to enable Aviva to market test our propositions and our approach to build. I found Alan a great person to work with, very professional, and delivered clear value.   

Matthew McGill, Head of Workplace Savings at Aviva

Alan worked for me throughout 2010 and had a transformational impact in terms of quality of input and nature of outcome from the areas he was accountable for. Pragmatic in his application of knowledge and very experienced, he would be an asset to any organisation requiring a sustained performance improvement.   

Paul McMahon, while MD of AXA Corporate Pensions

Alan reviewed the legacy staff pension arrangements when I took over as MD. He expertly liaised between the providers and my financial controller so we could properly understand and document the position. He also provided advance notice of auto enrolment responsibilities and how they could be fulfilled. I highly recommend him as an expert in his field both in thought leadership and practical application.   

Stephen Hitchen, MD of One Stop Hire

I first met Alan when he was Pensions Manager at M&S when we worked together on the Pensions Administration Large Schemes group (and have worked with him subsequently in his role at Fidelity). He has always been a standard bearer for service improvement and worked tirelessly to that end. A pleasure to work with.
