Pensions Policy Institute names Chris Curry as new director

Chris Curry has been appointed as the new director of the Pensions Policy Institute, succeeding Niki Cleal when she steps-down in June 2013.

Curry is currently the PPI Research Director, a post he has held for 11 years.

Michael Pomery CVO, PPI chairman of council says: “Chris Curry emerged from a very thorough selection process as the outstanding candidate and PPI Council are confident that he has the vision and experience to lead the PPI, building on the success of his predecessors in the role.”

Curry says: “I am delighted and extremely proud to be appointed as the next director of the PPI. With the UK pension system currently in transition, the need for a sound evidence base is as strong as ever, and I look forward to leading the PPI as we continue to provide high quality and independent research and analysis.”

“The PPI has gone from strength to strength under Niki Cleal’s guidance, and I am confident that the PPI will continue to develop into the future.”
