“PSGS offered the right support at very short notice, at reasonable cost, when we really needed it”
“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.”
“I would recommend them to anyone - I have dealt with a number of other independent trustee firms and would rate PSGS as the best. We are very happy with Mark and the service we get.”
“So much more proactive than the previous company. On the ball - thinking in advance of things needing doing - very proactive.”
“Thanks for all your help!”
“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.”
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, a secretary 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.
