Chris Atkin
Managing Director ,Solihull

Chris qualified as an actuary in 1976 and has since gained a wealth of experience in the pensions field. Initially with Friends Provident, he moved to Hogg Robinson in 1979. Chris then headed the Actuarial services at Bain Dawes before becoming a partner at Watson Wyatt in 1984, and moved to Birmingham to set up the Watson Wyatt Birmingham office. After moving to Hewitt Bacon Woodrow as partner in 1990, Chris decided to set up Atkin & Co in 1992. Over his 35 years in the pensions industry, Chris has worked with almost every type of scheme, from the multi-national multi-employer schemes to managing smaller schemes as they enter the PPF with Atkin Trustees Limited to advising on withdrawal arrangements from Local Government Pension Schemes. During this time he has also built up a thriving business, which has led him to hone an approach that focuses on applying commercial common sense to resolving problems. Chris is a popular contributor to the pension press and debates. He is particularly interested in discussing new ideas and supporting others who are interested in setting up their own businesses. He enjoys travelling to exotic places and can be occasionally seen on the golf course or cycling around the countryside.

With our previous advisors we very rarely went to them for consultation advice, as we had little faith in them. We tended to use solicitors, and to that extent the cost to the Company has been significantly reduced, and we are very happy with Atkin & Co’s approach and guidance here. We are all more than happy with our move to Atkin & Co.
