Boal & Co is pleased to announce the promotion of Karen Kelly to the Board of Boal & Co (Pensions) Ltd, its regulated pension administration and trustee subsidiary.
Karen first joined the Boal & Co team in 2010 as a Senior Consultant in the pensions team.
Karen said: ‘I’m delighted and honoured to have been asked to join the Board of Boal & Co (Pensions) Ltd. Our international pensions business has grown hugely over the last three years and the pace of growth is poised to continue, with new initiatives in the pipeline. To be able to contribute directly to this and to the development of our business as a director of the company is an extremely enticing prospect and a challenge that I will thoroughly enjoy.
‘Since joining the team at Boal & Co, Managing Director Gary Boal, Director Mark Kiernan and our team of consultants have provided huge support and encouragement in my role, enabling me to broaden my pensions experience and knowledge to encompass the wide range of clients and over $1 billion of pension funds that we oversee and administer on their behalf.
‘The last three years have presented some major challenges in respect of changing legislation and client requirements and together we have proactively responded to this and continued to grow an already successful pensions business.’
Gary Boal explained: ‘Pensions is a dynamic business, bringing with it constant changes in regulatory requirements, client requirements and new markets. Our international pension clients include some of the world’s largest and best known companies, who expect the best possible service. Karen is a very experienced pensions professional, and has proven herself in this demanding environment.’
Karen added: ‘My brief is to work with Gary and Mark to ensure that Boal & Co remains at the forefront of the international pensions industry and to reinforce our core proposition of Trustee and Administration services to corporate and personal clients, wherever in the world they may be. We have some interesting and exciting developments in the pipeline which I’m sure will keep me very busy in my new role.’
