Vince Linnane, former PMI Chief Executive, reflects on the sad passing of our Former President, Mike Anthony:
It is with deep regret that we announce the death of the former PMI President, Mike Anthony. Mike was PMI President 1989-91 following a term as Vice President and having been a PMI Council Member and Chairman of the Membership Services Committee.. During his Presidency, the PMI launched the Qualification in Pensions Administration (QPA), the first qualification aimed purely for pensions administrators. In the three decades since its launch, literally thousands of administrators passed it and the various successor qualifications it generated.
Mike spent a long and illustrious career in the pensions investment business, holding senior roles at Henderson, SEI and Julius Baer amongst others. He was a keen sportsman, acting as a referee in local Kent football leagues when his playing career was behind him. He also enjoyed playing golf and supported West Ham United FC.
A memorial service for Mike is being held on Monday 1st April at 2pm. at Vinters Park Crematorium, Bearsted Road, Maidstone, Kent, ME14 5LG. Afterwards at Bearsted Golf Club.
