Wayne Griffiths

“Wayne worked with us at A-Plant helping us to develop and market our stakeholder pension proposition to our employees. He was always keen to explore new ways of making our pension arrangements more attractive and more intelligible to our employees and together we made significant progress in introducing autoenrolment (long before legislation on the subject), salary sacrifice, retirement planning and scheme governance. Of particular note was Wayne’s ability to ‘connect’ with employees at all levels of the organisation and his success in making pensions and retirement planning relevant to employees who were often sceptical or suspicious about saving for retirement. Wayne put a lot of effort into supporting us as an HR team and ordinary scheme members and I look forward to working with him again in future.”

Mr & Mrs L Jimmison

“Wayne and I worked together over a number of years, developing and improving A-Plant’s stakeholder pension proposition. Wayne is extremely customer focused and supported the business to ensure our employees were well advised in respect of their pension benefits. His jargon-free and accessible approach enabled him to win the confidence of our employees and allowed us to significantly increase our pension scheme participation rates. Wayne was an integral part of helping us design and implement innovative and cost sensitive programmes. Despite the ‘dry’ subject matter, Wayne was always affable and able to adapt his style to suit his audience. I have no doubt that these skills will translate equally well in Wayne’s new endeavours.”
