Richard Parkin, head of pensions policy at Fidelity International, is leaving the firm, said a statement provided by a spokeswoman.
Mr. Parkin is departing of his own accord after 15 years with the company. "With the birth of his new son, (Mr. Parkin) would like to have a few months off with his family and take some time to think about the next stage of his career where he will continue to focus on retirement policy and proposition," said a statement by Fidelity International.
He will not be directly replaced, but Carolyn Jones, head of pensions product will take on more external-facing duties, while the retirement team will continue to be responsible for customers, added the statement.
Mr. Parkin led Fidelity's work on assessing the retirement landscape, identifying opportunities and developing strategies and services. He led retirement thought-leadership, working with Fidelity executives around the world.
He joined Fidelity in 2002 as head of defined contribution product development.
