“Clare Owen has been a really excellent scheme secretary”
“Ever increasing regulation has placed a heavy burden on trustees both in terms of time and the risk of non-compliance. PSGS has the experience and the resources to help trustees manage these burdens.”
“They have helped us save much more and created a cohesive plan to de-risk whilst building an integrated pension team.”
“So much more proactive than the previous company. On the ball - thinking in advance of things needing doing - very proactive.”
“We are extremely pleased with the appointment we made. The way Ian reacts to us and works with us is brilliant. We are very happy.”
“I enjoy working with PSGS and we have a very positive relationship. I was new to pensions and found them very helpful.”
Gillian acts as secretary to the trustees for several clients and manages pensions project work.
Gillian worked in pensions in Edinburgh and South Africa before joining Punter Southall in 1999. She became a Principal in 2002 and was responsible for the Guildford office administration team.
Gillian was the driving force behind initiatives to obtain the Plain English Crystal Mark for member communications and the annual internal controls review. Latterly, she was Head of Administration Client Services and implemented auto-enrolment for clients.
Gillian has acted as a scheme secretary since 2009 and transferred to us in 2014 to focus on this role.
She is a PMI Fellowship Network Ambassador, Chair of the PLSA Thames Valley committee and a member of the PLSA Defined Benefit Reference Group.
Gillian’s project management and organisational skills come in handy outside of work too, whether that’s for planning events like her son’s three day wedding or navigating her way around Moscow and St Petersburg.
