Administrative/Biographical history:

Anthony Davey (1933-2010) began his career in the pensions industry in 1968 as Pension Manager for British Aircraft Corporation (which merged with a number of aviation companies to become British Aerospace in 1977). He moved onto work as Pensions Director at Thomas Tilling Limited (which was acquired by BTR plc in 1983) from 1977.

In 1983 Davey became Managing Director of Hadrian Trustees Limited, who acted as independent trustees for a number of pension schemes, including the Shipbuilding Industry Pension Scheme (SIPS). Hadrian Trustees Limited transferred the administration of SIPS to a subsidiary, Hadrian Solway Limited, in 1990.

Davey was the Managing Director of Hadrian Solway between 1990 and 1995, then served as Non-Executive Director between 1995 and 1997. Hadrian Solway was acquired by Hartshead in 1995, and the company was renamed Hartshead Solway. Hartshead Solway was subsequently acquired by Capita Financial Services Limited in 1998, the same year Davey retired as Hadrian Trustee's Managing Director.

Davey then became an associate of BESTrustees PLC, who took over Capita Financial Services' independent trustee appointments in 1999.

Davey was also a fellow of the Pensions Management Institute and served on the Pensions Panel of the Institute of Chartered Secretaries and Administrators between 1991 and 1996.
