For Immediate Release: 28 March 2017

Workplace pensions provider NOW: Pensions recently welcomed Nottingham South Lilian Greenwood MP to its 37 Park Row office, to celebrate the company’s growth and successful recruitment drive, one year on since opening.

Lilian, who originally attended the launch and ribbon cutting ceremony in November 2015, was met by CEO Morten Nilsson and Director of Policy Adrian Boulding, as well as members of staff from client support, finance and operations.

The group discussed the company’s progression growing from 30 to 160 staff, the acquisition of a second floor of the office building, as well as the office becoming the business’ main operational site between London and Nottingham.

The meeting also covered key areas of policy focus for the business, including the approaching 2017 auto enrolment legislation review due out this year, which is advocated by both NOW: Pensions and the MP.

Morten Nilsson, CEO of NOW: Pensions said: “It’s been great to welcome back Lilian to our Nottingham office and to share with her our continued success story in the city, as well as our future aspirations as a company here.

“We’ve seen some exciting developments take shape at our Nottingham office over the past year and we’re continually impressed with the talent and experience of our staff who have played an integral role in our success; so much so, we’ve gone on to make Nottingham our main operational site.

“We are one of the UK’s leading providers for workplace pensions, serving 25,000 clients and supporting over 1.2 million members and with nearly a million small companies still looking to fulfil their auto enrolment duties, we’ve made sure that we are in a strong position to help and support our growing customer base.

“We continue to support key focuses of auto enrolment legislation and we’re delighted to share our views and reinforce bonds with Nottingham’s’ local MP.”

Lilian Greenwood MP Nottingham said: “I was delighted to hear about the success that NOW Pensions are enjoying and the benefits that is bringing to Nottingham – creating jobs and building the city’s reputation as a great place for new businesses. As the Government begins its review of Pension auto-enrolment it was helpful to discuss what providers like NOW Pensions believe needs to be done to ensure that more people are able to save for a pension.”
