Blue Pier Administration Corp. is appointing Brian Mills to the board of trustees of its retirement plan.

“Brian brings to the board a wealth of knowledge, experience and expertise in pension governance and administration,” said Lesley Gallinger, board chair, in a press release. “We are delighted to welcome Brian and look forward to working with him to make pension plan membership available to more workers in Ontario and across Canada.”

From October 2014 to June 2019, Mills was chief executive officer of the Financial Services Commission of Ontario and superintendent of financial services for Ontario. Across his 40-year career, he was also a policy advisor with several Ontario government ministries, vice-president of pension administration at the Ontario Pension Board and a managing partner at Towers Perrin before it became Willis Towers Watson.

“One thing I’ve learned over my career is that pension coverage and good governance matter,” said Mills. “Workers who participate in well-governed plans that operate in their interests retire better and with less worry. Today, most workers don’t get the opportunity to join a pension plan. I’m very much looking forward to working with my fellow board members to change that.”
