Head of Industry Liaison (retired),
The Pensions Regulator (UK)
Neil Esslemont recently retired to Cyprus, after working for The Pensions Regulator in the UK for about a decade, where he gained an in-depth understanding of the pensions and payroll industry. Specifically, Neil was an expert on the automatic enrolment legislation and the technical and regulatory challenges involved with introducing a Pensions Dashboard.
Neil’s background is in the IT & Telecommunications industries, where he worked for over 30 years for blue chip companies such as International Computers Ltd (now Fujitsu), Coopers & Lybrand Deloitte (now PwC), BT and Siemens – after graduating a year early from Exeter University with a Mathematics and Physics degree.
With his blend of government and consultancy experience, together with his technological and financial knowledge & skills, Neil has gained significant insight into many of the challenges currently facing the finance and pensions industry – and has been a supporter of TTF’s mission for many years.
