WTW’s UK Retirement business has appointed Katherine Russell and Neil Tooth as Office Retirement Leaders in Bristol and Birmingham, respectively.

 In their new roles, Russell and Tooth are responsible for leading the local Retirement teams in providing consulting services to corporate and trustee clients, while fostering a strong sense of community and inspiring growth and development within the team. They are accountable for the delivery of services to clients, as well as people management, commercial development and the financial results of the team.
