James Riley was appointed president of the Society of Pension Professionals in the U.K., effective June 1, said a spokeswoman.
Mr. Riley, who is a partner at advisory firm Isio, the former U.K. retirement advisory unit at KPMG, will replace Paul McGlone, whose two-year term expires in June. Mr. McGlone is a partner at Aon.
Mr. Riley will focus on themes such as the defined benefit funding codes and building a sustainable future for defined contribution plans by improving automatic enrollment and environmental, social and governance standards, on behalf of the society's 500 U.K. retirement plan members.
"I very much look forward to working with James as president. It has not been long since my appointment and I am excited about how our combined fresh energy can build on all of the great work performed by the society to date," Fred Emden, CEO of SPP, said in a news release Monday.
