Helen Dean to become Nest boss

Helen Dean, Nest’s executive director for product and marketing, has been chosen as the workplace pension scheme’s next chief executive and will take up the role in Autumn.

In February, Nest confirmed the recruitment process for a chief executive had begun following Tim Jones’s decision to stand down at the end of 2015.

Nest chairman Otto Thoresen said Ms Dean’s experiences would be invaluable to ensure AE went well for small and micro businesses.
