National Employment Savings Trust (NEST) director of communications and engagement Graham Vidler has quit to join the National Association of Pension Funds (NAPF).
He will join the pensions organisation as director of external affairs in late spring.
Vidler (pictured), who has been at NEST for five years, previously worked as a researcher for the House of Commons, policy adviser for the Association of British Insurers (ABI) and head of policy at Which?, the consumer organisation.
NAPF chief executive Joanne Segars said: "I am delighted Graham is joining the NAPF at this important time for the pensions industry. His expertise and enthusiasm for pensions matches our own priorities and those of our members. He will be a great asset to the NAPF."
In his new role, Vidler will be responsible for leading the organisation's external affairs across policy, research, media and parliament.
Vidler's departure from NEST follows John Taylor, who is due to exit in May. He left the mass-market pension provider to run Hyman Robertson's guided outcomes (GO) proposition.
