B&CE1, the provider of The People’s Pension, has further bolstered its executive committee with the appointment of a new Chief Information Officer.

Nigel Rodgers has joined the organisation from Curtis Banks, where he was Group Chief Information Officer and led the successful acquisition of Dunstan Thomas (FinTech) in 2020.

During a two-decade career in financial services, he’s also held senior roles at Legal & General, Cofunds and Suffolk Life and is an expert in Change, IT and Strategy.

His responsibilities at B&CE, which, through The People’s Pension, provides a pension to 1 in 5 UK workers, include leading the IT function and driving the digital agenda as the organisation looks for new ways to enhance the customer experience through digitisation.

Nigel Rodgers said:

“I am thrilled to be joining B&CE during this period of organisational transformation as it embraces the digitisation of customer journeys to further enhance the customer value proposition, while continuing to provide excellent value products to millions of UK workers.”

Patrick Heath-Lay, chief executive of B&CE said:

“With the impending introduction of pensions dashboards, Nigel and his team will be pivotal to B&CE’s journey towards offering our 5.8 million members an improved digital experience and I am delighted that he will be joining us.”
