ZEDRA Governance (formerly PTL) promotes Kim Nash to Managing Director

10 October 2022

ZEDRA today announced that Kim Nash will become Managing Director of ZEDRA Governance Limited. The appointment will take effect from 1 November 2022.

Commenting on the position, Kim said: “Since joining the firm I have been fortunate to be part of some significant company milestones, most recently with the transition from PTL to ZEDRA. During those years, not only has the organisation become one of the top five professional trustee firms in the market, but the market itself has grown and evolved significantly. This new market environment and enhanced organisational resources, bring even more opportunity.

“We have always prided ourselves on our commitment to innovation – anticipating change and what that means for our clients. Over the next few years, as part of the ZEDRA family, we will focus on enhancing our existing team of trustees and governance experts, continuing to develop practical and innovative solutions for our clients and their evolving needs whilst, as ever, keeping the delivery of good outcomes for members and employers alike as our top priority. I am looking forward to leading the organisation on this journey.”

Ivo Hemelraad, ZEDRA Chief Executive Officer, said: “Kim is well known for her energy, vision, and expertise. This enviable combination of skills will be a real asset in her new role, providing strategic direction for ZEDRA Governance. I am very much looking forward to continuing our work together.”

Kim will be assuming the Managing Director role from Richard Butcher who has successfully held the position since 2010. Richard will be giving up his management and operational duties, cutting back his working week as a first and significant step towards eventual retirement. He will, however, remain at the firm as a Client Director and continue to look after his current portfolio of clients for the time being.

“Kim joined ZEDRA as a Client Director in February 2012 and became a member of the board in 2017. Her calm assurance, excellent people skills, and extensive technical knowledge have made her one of the most sought-after professional trustees in the industry and I wish her success in her new role. No doubt she will continue being a great asset for the team and our clients,” said Richard.

Kim is a qualified actuary and highly experience professional trustee, having been appointed to the boards of numerous DB, DC, and hybrid pension schemes, and master trusts and independent governance committees.
