Vidett, the leading professional trustee and pension governance firm in the UK, is boosting its business development team with the appointment of Tom Earl as Head of Opportunities and will help drive business growth opportunities across the UK. Tom is the 7th appointment since Vidett was established this year following the merger of 20-20 Trustees and Punter Southall Governance Services.
Tom joins from KPMG UK where he was Senior Pursuit Coach. He brings over 10 years’ experience as a business development specialist in pensions, professional services and technology to Vidett. He started his business development career in 2013 as a bid and commercial analyst at CenturyLink, and since then, has worked in business development teams at leading pensions organisations including Mercer, BDO, Buck and BESTrustees.
Tom said: “I’m thrilled to join Vidett so early on in its journey. Demand for professional trustee and governance services is continuing to grow rapidly and I’m really looking forward to connecting more schemes and organisations with our expertise.”
Wayne Phelan, Co-Chief Executive at Vidett, stated, “Tom brings a huge amount of industry expertise and knowledge which will be invaluable to our business development team as we focus on our growth. Vidett was only formed in February and since then we have concentrated on expanding our team with some of the top professionals in the industry. We wish Tom every success in his new role.”
Tom is an APMP Capture Practitioner and has a Bachelor of Law (LLB) from the University of Reading.
