Cushon founder & CEO Ben Pollard says: “We’re absolutely delighted that we’ve been able to bring Dianne, Andrew and Julius on board. We’re really raising the bar with the launch of our Net Zero Now pensions proposition, but this is just the beginning. Using our market-leading tech approach there’s lots more to come from Cushon and I’m delighted to have their support as we enter this exciting next phase of growth.”
