Lisa will now be responsible for leading the PPF’s actuarial financial management, finance, commercial and internal audit departments and will do this alongside her current role as Chief Actuary.
“It brings me great pleasure to officially welcome Lisa to our Executive Committee as our new Chief Finance Officer. As we continue to grow, analysing our long-term funding strategy becomes more important. Lisa’s wealth of experience and proven leadership skills puts us in a steadfast position,” said Oliver Morley, our Chief Executive Officer.
Since her appointment as Chief Actuary in September 2018, Lisa has been responsible for providing actuarial advice to the Board. She’s also been responsible for the annual valuation of the fund which is included in our Annual Report and Accounts, and has played a leading role in enhancing our modelling capabilities whilst considering the next evolution of the organisation’s funding strategy. Lisa has also been covering the role of CFO on an interim basis since October 2019.
“Having grown my career at the PPF over the past 10 years, I am excited to be able to continue to shape the PPF’s funding strategy and lead my team to ensure the business is well-placed to handle any eventualities the future of the pensions’ landscape may bring,” explained Lisa.
Now operating at the highest level within her profession and as a part time working mum, Lisa has been a popular role model for our Emerging Women group which has been established to support women in the development phase of their career. She recently led a webinar alongside Stephen Wilcox our Chief Risk Officer on The Purple Book, and earlier this month appeared on the front cover of Actuarial Post.
Lisa joined us in March 2009 as Financial Assistance Scheme (FAS) Operations Actuary and in August the following year was appointed as Actuarial Practice Leader. In September 2017, she was given the interim role of Appointed Actuary before taking up the position as Chief Actuary.
