Bill Galvin


Bill joined 3173 Limited (“The Group”) as Chief Executive Officer (“CEO”) on 1 March 2024.

His role as CEO supports the continuing strong growth of the leading UK pension governance, advisory, investment and technology Group which includes the Dalriada Trustees, Spence & Partners and Mantle businesses.

Bill previously served as CEO of USS (the UK’s largest pension scheme) for over a decade. During his time as CEO, Bill built a high-performing executive team, and steered the scheme through very challenging circumstances. Under his charge, USS created significant value for members: introducing an innovative hybrid pension offering, building a sector-leading in-house investment team, and creating a pension administration function that receives excellent ratings for service levels and decision support. Prior to joining the USS, Bill spent almost five years at the Pensions Regulator, latterly as CEO, where he was responsible for the efficient regulation and supervision of the UK pension market notably during the launch and introduction of autoenrollment in 2012.

Bill is experienced operating at board level, with over 13 years as a CEO leading, structuring and changing complex organisations. He brings a facilitative but highly effective leadership style. He is skilled in grappling with challenging trade-offs, making decisions and delivering outcomes in complex public and private sector environments.

Bill is also a Council Member for the Institute for Fiscal Studies and a Governor of the Pensions Policy Institute. He has previously served on the Boards of the Pensions Advisory Service, The Solicitors Regulation Authority, and the European Insurance and Occupational Pensions Authority.
