David Trenner has decided to retire as technical director at Glasgow-based advice firm Intelligent Pensions.
The firm has hired Fiona Tait from Royal London to replace him in the role.
Trenner (pictured) has worked in pensions and advice for 40 years. Before joining Intelligent Pensions he worked at Scottish Widows and Sedgwicks.
Tait, who is currently pension specialist at Royal London, will help advisers at the firm with technical issues. She will also help direct clients of Intelligent Pensions.
Intelligent Pensions managing director Steve Patterson said Trenner would now be 'able to benefit from his own retirement advice' after leaving the firm.
Patterson added that Tait's experience would benefit clients.
'She has worked tirelessly to raise the technical standards in the pensions industry and is outspoken in her views on how changes and improvements can be made to encourage long term savings and ensure better consumer outcomes,' he said.
'Her technical knowledge is second to none and as we continue to develop the business she will be a driving force behind this.'
Tait added: 'When looking to make the next move in my career, it was an obvious choice for me. I have known David for many years and I look forward to continuing his work, along with the team, across their range of pension and retirement planning services.'
Trenner said he would use his retirement to keep up with sport results.
'Over the past 40 years, there have been very few dull days and I have continued to learn and meet some fascinating people,' he said.
'I now look forward to spending more time with my wife and family and keeping up with my cricket and football interests.'
