- Robert Branagh
Caroline Rookes, Chair of TPO said:
“I am delighted to welcome Emir, Myfanwy, Mark and Robert to TPO’s Corporate Board. DWP’s appointment of the Non-Executive Directors, along with my permanent appointment as Chair in November 2020, means that TPO now has a full Corporate Board as recommended in its Tailored Review 2019.
I am looking forward to working with the NEDs to continue to strengthen TPO’s governance and provide a strategic steer in uncertain times as we await the full impact of the Covid-19 pandemic to evolve.”
Anthony Arter, Pensions Ombudsman added:
