Universities Superannuation Scheme publishes on its website:
“USS, the largest private pension scheme in the UK, is appointing the former CEO of Church Commissioners for England as a non-executive director. Andrew Brown was nominated by University and College Union and will formally join USS’s Trustee Board on 1 August 2020. His appointment will take the board to 12 directors. A chartered surveyor who studied at what is now London South Bank University, Andrew spent 26 years with Church Commissioners for England – as Chief Surveyor (1994-2003) and then Secretary (CEO) – before retiring in January 2020.
The Church Commissioners for England manages £8.7bn in assets on behalf of the Church of England. Like USS, it is committed to promoting responsible investment and environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues in the way it invests and engages with businesses, sectors and policymakers. USS has a long-standing commitment to responsible investment and ESG issues, most notably in relation to climate change, and Andrew’s appointment follows news of USS’s first exclusions and divestment policy.”
