Hilton is based in London and reports to Paul Wilson, head of Employee Benefits Consulting at Barclays Corporate & Employer Solutions (C&ES).

Commenting on the appointment, Paul Wilson, Head of Employee Benefits Consulting at Barclays Corporate & Employer Solutions said: 'We have a fresh and innovative approach to the employee benefits arena and Richard’s appointment is a crucial step in delivering an exceptional offering to our clients. At Barclays, we are relentless in our pursuit of the very best talent in the market and I am confident that Richard will play an important role for our clients as we launch our comprehensive and exciting benefits offering later this year'.
