Trafalgar House, the pensions administration specialist, today announced the expansion of its London team with the appointment of Robert Branagh as non-executive director.

Branagh is a well-known contributor on administration, governance, quality and transparency to the pensions industry and joins Trafalgar House after concluding his executive career on boards at Paymaster and RPMI.

He said: "Having known Trafalgar House in my previous roles, I was already drawn to their position as specialists in the field of administration.

"I'm pleased to be part of this expert team and look forward to helping the organisation push their unique proposition forwards."

Branagh has spent close to 10 years in non-executive director roles, including the Tavistock Institute for Human Relations, the Civil Service Pensions Board, Moorlands Human Capital Limited, the Pensions Policy Institute and he currently chairs the Armed Forces Pension board and the Pensions Management Institute board.

Trafalgar House is a pensions administration specialist that provides administration, payroll, accounting & treasury and trustee secretarial services to occupational pension schemes of all types and sizes.

It doesn't operate contact centres or offshore any services, but provides a self-service member website offering access to benefits and personal data in real-time which, it says, gives its members a better experience.

Garry Wake, Trafalgar House managing director, said Robert's appointment is "extremely positive news" for the company.

He said: "Robert brings with him rich experience of leading and growing organisations within the industry.

"He joins us at a very exciting time and will be helping us realise our vision of becoming the provider that sets the highest standard for pensions administration in the UK.

"His knowledge and passion for development will be a great asset for us."
