The Professional Trustee firm, Capital Cranfield, is pleased to announce the appointment of William Medlicott, as their seventh new professional trustee recruit in 2017.

Commenting on William’s appointment, Neil McPherson, Managing Director, Capital Cranfield, said:

“We look for a range of backgrounds for our Professional Trustees. The seven trustees who have joined us this year have bought a wide range of skills and experience, from DC to Covenant, and William’s financial pedigree brings yet further diversity to our team. Over many years as a trustee William has dealt with some complex issues that will enable him to bring considerable value to both his clients and our business. We are delighted to have him on board”.

William Medlicott added:

My experience of viewing pension issues through both trustee and sponsor lenses made professional trusteeship a natural career evolution for me. Today’s trustees are under increasing pressure to achieve good outcomes and demonstrate good governance. I look forward to using my experience to benefit my clients”.
