TPAS chief Phillips to step down in the summer

The Pensions Advisory Service chief executive, Marta Phillips OBE CA will be stepping down in the summer, the organisation has confirmed. 

The TPAS Board will shortly begin its search for a successor.

Marta Phillips says: “I have enjoyed leading TPAS over the last three years but feel it’s now time to broaden my experience. I took over at a challenging time with fewer resources and growing demand for our services from the public.  However, our staff and volunteers have responded magnificently and TPAS has been able to help many more thousands of people with their pension problems.

“I set out to transform the way that TPAS works and prepare for automatic enrolment.  These have now been completed.  Part of my legacy will be the new infrastructure that has been put in place.  This has made us more efficient and improved the quality of the service we are able to provide for the public.”

Partha Dasgupta, chairman at TPAS says: “I would like to thank Marta for her hard work over the past three years and for agreeing to stay on to the summer to help facilitate an orderly transition.  I am confident that many of the changes she has put in place will help us play our part in supporting the introduction of automatic enrolment and other changes.  I wish her every success in the next stages of her career.”
