ZEDRA Governance appoints Phil Clark as Client Director

23 May 2023

We are pleased to announce the appointment of Phil Clark as Client Director of ZEDRA Governance. Phil will be based in the firm’s London office.

Commenting, Kim Nash, Managing Director, ZEDRA Governance, said: “ZEDRA has a clear objective to grow while never compromising on skills, experience, or professional cultural fit. The independent trustee market has grown substantially in recent years as more schemes have recognised the benefits that skilled professionals can bring to pension scheme boards. It has also become more competitive, especially as the market consolidates.

“Our people have always been our biggest strength and that extends well beyond the size of our team. We are committed to bringing pragmatism, innovation, technical expertise and, most importantly, the soft skills needed to influence and empower people. It is also absolutely vital for us that our team has approached trusteeship as a career choice. Phil has all of these skills and more, with a strong background in strategic planning and creative thinking. He will work closely with our clients to manage the risks and opportunities facing their schemes. Phil will be a huge asset to ZEDRA, and we welcome him to the team.”

Phil added: “What really appealed to me about working with ZEDRA is their distinctive approach to independent trusteeship; in terms of market positioning, longstanding client relationships, and how they operate internally as a team. Independent trusteeship is a uniquely interesting role which has a huge impact on the ultimate direction of a scheme and, crucially, member outcomes. Being able to play a key role in that with an ambitious and forward-thinking organisation will be extremely rewarding.”

Phil joins ZEDRA after a 24-year career at Mercer, starting as a trainee and finishing as a Senior Actuarial Consultant. Phil holds a Diploma in Actuarial Techniques and a BSc in Mathematics, Operational Research, Statistics and Economics.
