UNILEVER UK PENSION FUND

2021 active member Trustee election results

In January 2021, the Trustees invited active members of the Fund to put themselves forward as candidates to join the Board. We were looking to welcome two new active member-nominated Trustees - one from each constituency. They would replace Bill Hodgson (constituency 1) and Matthew Powell (constituency 2), whose terms came to an end on 30 April 2021.

Once the applications were in, we encouraged all active members of the Fund to vote for their preferred candidate from the constituency they work in.

We’re pleased to announce that Alex Aquino (constituency 1) and Thomas Lingard (constituency 2) received the highest number of votes and were duly elected.

Alex and Thomas started their Trustee duties on 1 May 2021. For the next 4 years, their job will be to work with the rest of the Trustees to manage the Fund so that it pays the right benefits, to the right people, at the right time.
