Claire offers a very approachable, professional and balanced service, recognising her obligations to the Scheme but providing an awareness of the Employer's perspective. We value Claire's wider industry knowledge and the experience she brings.
They deliver above expectation when the scheme has a particular challenge.

Role

Fiona is an accredited professional trustee acting as chair of trustees, sole trustee and scheme governance manager.

Background & experience

Fiona started her career in 1994 as Assistant Company Secretary for Bridport-Gundry Limited (now Bridport plc), also acting as inhouse Assistant Pensions Manager.

Fiona decided to focus solely on pensions, moving to work as Assistant Pensions Manager with SAUR Water and then Premier Hotels Limited where she undertook to bring in the administration of the GPP scheme.

Fiona moved into trusteeship when she joined us in 2001. Her wide experience means she understands the many complex challenges faced by schemes, sponsoring employers and co-trustees and is able to suggest pragmatic and effective solutions. She specialises in small to medium size pension funds.

Fiona has undertaken and successfully completed a Critical Thinking course run by Oxford University and has been a parent representative at her daughter’s school.
