Welcome to our show, Let’s Talk Pensions Podcast, with Episode #2 Talk – Seeing the Big Pension Picture, with Bre-An Appler and Randy Bauslaugh, of McCarthy Tetrault. Randy shares about his role in the pension industry as a whole, including involvement on an international scale. He also shares his involvement in many different organizations and levels of the industry, that help him not only give legal views, but also allow him to contribute back to the industry.
Randy explains why he chose the pension track over anything else in the legal field. He also speaks to a big picture perspective and the role of leadership in the industry. Randy shares what he sees that needs to change in the industry, regarding an evolution away from single employer pension plans, toward a multi-employer plan.
