ITM, the UK leader in pensions, data migration, analysis and systems, today announces the appointment of Jonathan Hawkins as Client Development Manager to build and strengthen the firm’s client opportunities.

The announcement comes as ITM continues to build on its success in delivering client-focused pensions solutions, including its PenScope software for Pensions administration and its eAsE software for Auto Enrolment.

In this newly created role, Jonathan will be responsible for engaging with a wider range of prospective and existing clients about ITM’s software capabilities, directing future technology developments and creating new propositions to further unlock ITM’s expertise for its clients. Prior to joining ITM, Jonathan held senior life and pensions systems related roles with AquilaHeywood and Xafinity.

Guy Ridley, Managing Director, ITM said:

“Technology solutions are a core component of ITM’s services to clients, and with eAsE now enrolling over 100,000 employees and integrated with an increasing number of pension and payroll providers, we see strong prospects for this solution.  Further, the demand for PenScope is increasing and Jonathan’s experience in heading a systems team for an EBC’s administration unit, as well as his recent role consulting with large financial services institutions, gives him a unique insight into where ITM’s software can help new and existing clients face up to both today’s and tomorrow’s challenges. The addition of Jonathan to our growing team at ITM will help us to ensure existing and new clients are able to optimise their pensions operations through both PenScope and eAsE.’’

Jonathan added: “I have watched ITM for many years and have seen the business grow and develop over that time. I’ve been really impressed by ITM’s client focus and dedication and a real passion to ‘think differently’. With ITM now in a strong position to grow its software propositions, I’m really excited to bring my expertise to explain to a wider range of clients what today’s ITM can do for them. The industry is facing many challenges, and as expected, ITM is in the vanguard for providing innovative solutions for the complex problems faced by the financial services and pensions industries.”
