A former CEO of Aviva Ireland is set to join the board of RPMI, the administrator of the UK’s £30 billion Railway Pension Scheme.
Alison Burns has been named as a non-executive director, having held a number of executive and non-executive positions at UK financial services firms including Axa UK, Santander and Lloyds TSB.
She is also currently a board member of National House Building Council and two UK public companies, Equiniti and Hastings.
“Alison’s appointment is an important part of our commitment to delivering the highest standards of governance," said chair of the RPMI board, Babloo Ramamurthy.
“Her experience within the pensions and financial services industry, as well as her proven track record as a non-executive director, will be invaluable in helping us ensure we continue to meet the trustee’s mission to pay our members’ pensions securely, affordably and sustainably,” added Ramamurthy.
