Equiniti is delighted to announce that Jason Hayes has returned as IT Director of the company’s pension business.

Jason is responsible for all IT products and services delivered into EQPaymaster, Equiniti’s specialist pension, payment and benefits administration division. He is managing a team of around 300 staff across multiple locations in the UK and in Chennai to deliver optimal digital and technology solutions for our direct software and administration clients including the Civil Service Pension Schemes.

Jason has returned to the role he had until May 2018, when he joined ITM as their Chief Technology Officer immediately after their management buyout was announced.  

Jason originally joined Equiniti in 2009 and has had roles encompassing client services and product management. In 2011, he set up Equiniti’s off-shore pensions’ development and testing division in Chennai and introduced DSDM Agile to improve software development which has now been extended to all projects across onshore and off-shore teams.

Jason was recently appointed as Fellow of the British Computer Society and has over 20 years of experience in the life and pensions industry in which he has won numerous awards for innovation in technology and specific mobile app-based awards.

Commenting on the appointment, Jason commented:

“I am thrilled to be back at Equiniti and to continue building on the significant progress that we have been making over the past decade. As a leading pension administrator, it is absolutely crucial that we are at the cutting edge of technology so that schemes can realise their potential and improve the service they offer their members.”

Ric Williams, CEO of EQPaymaster added:

“I am delighted to welcome Jason back to Equiniti – his expertise is self-evident and he has been at the heart of making our Compendia platform the best in the market. His passion and his focus on how we can use technology to deliver better outcomes for scheme members and schemes themselves makes him stand out from his peers. He is a real asset and a key member of my leadership team.”
