Link Group has appointed Danny Meehan as Growth Leader for its UK Retirement Solutions business. Danny will assume responsibility for all aspects of the team’s growth, as part of Link Group’s investment in transforming the UK pensions market and scaling its business.
Link Group has been heavily investing in UK pensions over the past three years, as part of its strategy to turn the pensions market upside down by bringing its Australian capability and technology to the UK.
This important leadership appointment follows the recent acquisition of HS Pensions and the onboarding of major new clients by Link Group. Danny will oversee Link Group’s continued expansion into the UK pension and retirement solutions market as part of a coordinated strategy to drive growth and lead strategic relationships with clients, trustees, government, industry associations and advisers.
With 17 years’ experience in the financial services and professional services markets, Danny has held senior positions at KPMG, Capita, Willis Towers Watson and Cushon. He is an experienced consulting, sales and proposition leader with a proven history of driving growth for fintech, business process outsourcing, multinational pensions and employee benefits businesses and professional services firms.
He joins Link Group from Cushon, following four years as Proposition and Development Director, where he played a key role in the digital leadership and development of the Master Trust and its member-led propositions.
Danny Meehan, Growth Leader, Retirement Solutions said: “Link Group has set a course to transform the experience and engagement that members have with their pensions by combining the best of Australia with its deep UK expertise. This is an amazing opportunity and I am looking forward the challenge of bringing millions of members onboard to our servicing and analytics platform in the coming years.”
