Andrien Meyers was named senior investment consultant at JLT Employee Benefits, said a spokeswoman.
The position is new, reflecting the firm’s ambition to expand its investment consulting business in the public sector. Mr. Meyers will start in the second quarter.
Mr. Meyers will join from the London Borough of Lambeth, where he was treasury and pensions manager. He managed the £1 billion ($1.4 billion) pension fund and was involved in implementing funding and investment policies, monitoring and reporting the performance of the portfolio. He was also responsible for the council's treasury function.
He will work closely with Kieran Harkin, head of local government pension scheme investment consulting, and will devise strategic, governance and asset pooling solutions, as well as advising the local government pension funds on the evolving regulatory environment. He will also become involved in consulting private-sector clients.
A Lambeth spokesman said: “(Mr.) Meyers is leaving Lambeth council after a highly successful spell with the local authority, and we wish him all the best for the future. We will be recruiting a replacement to fill his former role.”
