Redington, the independent investment consultant and technology specialist, has announced the appointment of Sylvia Pozezanac as Chief Executive Officer (CEO), subject to FCA approval.
Sylvia (pictured) joins Redington on 04 April 2022 from Mercer UK, where she was President and CEO. An accomplished leader, she brings more than 30 years of international experience in retirement, investment consulting and insurance. She succeeds Mitesh Sheth MBE, who left Redington in December 2021.
As CEO, Sylvia will lead Redington’s continued purposeful growth and strategic expansion in existing and new markets. Over the coming months she will work alongside Interim CEO and Executive Board Member, Zoe Taylor, to ensure a smooth transition of responsibilities, as Zoe resumes her Deputy CEO role.
Kathryn Purves, Chair of the Board, commented: “Redington is at a hugely exciting point in its development. As we continue towards our aim of helping to make 100 million people financially secure, for the benefit of people and planet, our focus is on supporting our growing client base of DB and DC pension schemes, and also expanding our proposition for wealth managers across the UK & Europe. Key to this is advancing our technology solutions to help all clients make more timely and informed decisions for the benefit of their end-beneficiaries.
“Given Sylvia’s impressive experience, combined with a clear desire to innovate and understand each and every one of our clients’ needs, I am certain she is the right person to lead Redington on this journey.”
Sylvia Pozezanac said: “Redington created a storm in the market when it launched in 2006 and I have followed its development with interest ever since. The fact that after 15 years the business remains so well-known for its relentless client focus, innovative, purpose-driven and inclusive culture speaks for itself.
“Redington has clear ambitions for continued responsible and strategic growth and technological innovation which I am excited to be part of. I look forward to working with the team to advance these objectives and drive even more successful outcomes for our clients.”
Kathryn Purves concluded: “On behalf of all of us at Redington, I would like to extend our deepest gratitude to Zoe Taylor, whose steadfast leadership as interim CEO has provided stability to our teams and clients and will provide a strong partnership for Sylvia in her new role.”
