Goddard Perry, the employee benefit consultants and third-party administrators, has hired financial services communications specialists MRM to help raise its profile.
The business recently announced the merger of its two master trust brands – Spinnaker Master Trust and Salvus Master Trust – with effect from January 1st 2016 to create a scheme with 10,000 members and £40m of assets.
Associate Director Mark Gee will lead the account team that will also draw on the expertise of Havard Hughes, former Senior Associate at the FCA and MRM’s current Head of Public & Regulatory Affairs, and the firm’s Head of Digital, Michael Taggart.
Steve Goddard, MD of Goddard Perry commented: “The merger of our two master trust brands is just one of the ways that demonstrates our clear commitment to financial advisers and employee benefits consultants. We are a true champion of these businesses and in MRM we have an agency that has a good understanding of reaching this target audience through a range of tools and tactics.”
Mark Gee, Associate Director at MRM added: “Given the rush for employers to comply with auto enrolment requirements, the workplace pensions arena is currently a very fast-moving and exciting commercial environment to be involved in. We are delighted to be working with the team at Goddard Perry to help it grow the business through a range of communication activities.”
