The National Federation of Occupational Pensioners (NFOP) announces its new Chief Executive Officer, Mr Malcolm Booth. He replaces Roger Turner, who recently retired after 14 years in the post.
Malcolm has been with the organisation since 2007, initially as the Deputy CEO and Treasurer. Before joining NFOP, Malcolm spent 25 years in the retail arm of Barclays Bank followed by eight years with the Foresters Friendly Society. This prior experience enables him to provide NFOP with a broad knowledge in financial matters, as well as guidance and support to its members.
Mr Booth said: “I take over at a time of difficult economic conditions which presents pensioners with many challenges. Further cuts in government spending will increase these burdens. It is essential that the Federation continues to campaign for pensioner rights and benefits and works to dismiss the myths surrounding the perceived wealth of individuals with company pensions.
“The Federation is now ideally placed to provide its services to anyone with a company pension. The more individuals who join us the louder our voice will be and the better our chance of having an impact.
“I would encourage anyone who receives a company pension to join us.
“My aim is to ensure the Federation retains its pre-eminent position as a voice for those with a company pension.”
