McPhillips new Dentons technical director following Tilley departure
9 December 2018
Dentons Pension Management has appointed Stephen McPhillips as technical sales director following the departure of Martin Tilley.
McPhillips first joined Dentons in January 2012, having previously built up extensive knowledge of the member directed pensions sector at several large providers, including Pointon York, Cofunds, James Hay and Scottish Equitable.
McPhillips first entered the industry 30 years ago, training as a SSAS administrator looking after his own portfolio of SSAS clients, before progressing to a field-based SSAS consultant which involved providing face-to-face SSAS consultancy services to clients, their advisers and solicitors. McPhillips was elected a Fellow of the PMI in March 2018.
His appointment follows the departure of Tilley, who has taken up a new position at a wealth management firm following 30 years’ service with Dentons.
Derrick Fowler, joint managing Director, dentons Pensions Management said: “Having spent 30 years with us, Martin has decided to move into a wealth management role and will be leaving Dentons in January. With immediate effect, Stephen McPhillips has been appointed technical sales director; with over three decades of SIPP and SSAS experience he was an obvious choice to move into this position. His technical knowledge is second to none and we look forward to continuing to provide expert help and support to advisers and their clients.”
McPhillips commented: “There has been unprecedented change in the SIPP and SSAS sector since I joined Dentons back in 2012. Advisers are looking to partner with SIPP providers that are committed to the market and are investing to ensure they have the people, systems and processes in place to provide high quality administration. That is Dentons in a nutshell, and I look forward to continuing to provide technical help and guidance to advisers.“
