 In the 2003 Queen’s Birthday Honours, Joanne was awarded an OBE for services to the pensions industry.

 Nigel Waterson, Chair of Trustees, NOW: Pensions said: “Joanne’s experience, knowledge and standing within the pensions industry are second to none. Her integrity, independence and commitment to ensuring the best outcomes for members make her the perfect choice for the Trustee Board and I look forward to welcoming her.

 “Strong, independent governance is of the utmost importance to us and Dalriada will help us ensure that we are carrying out all of our duties with absolute rigour.”

 Nigel continues: “I would like to take this opportunity to thank Lord Monks for the contribution he has made to the Trustee Board over the past six years. His insight and wisdom will be greatly missed.”

 Commenting on her appointment, Joanne Segars OBE said: “As one of the largest and most innovative master trusts in the market, NOW: Pensions has an important role to play in ensuring auto enrolment is a success. I look forward to joining the Trustee Board as the company continues to expand and cement its position in the market and to further develop its approach to responsible investment as its assets under management continue to grow.”
