Mike O'Donnell interviewed on Fiftyfaces Podcast

As part of its ‘Fiftyfaces Podcast’, Room 151 has interviewed London CIV’s Mike O’Donnell and three other current and former LGPS leaders. All four of them gave insightful interviews covering their background and career journey, leadership and governance issues, responsible investing, the challenges they have faced and their personal reflections.

Hosted by Aoifinn Devitt, chief investment officer at Moneta and independent advisor to four LGPS pension funds, the Fiftyfaces podcast provides an opportunity for a discussion at length with a range of investment and leaders.

As well as Mike, the mini-series of LGPS interviews involved Chris Hitchen, chairman of the Border to Coast Pensions Partnership, Doug Heron, CEO of CERN Pension Fund (and formerly CEO at Lothian Pension Fund); and David Vickers, chief investment officer at Brunel Pensions Partnership. 

Mike, who has just announced that he is stepping down as CEO in March 2023, also highlighted key governance issues. “You need to invest time and effort in good governance. Appropriate education and training of committees was vital to give them time to develop their knowledge before they take a decision”, he said.
