Kathy, may l take this opportunity to thank you for your assistance. There were many times l thought l was losing my mind during my efforts with Aviva. You were a pillar of support for me and you saw my case through to the very end. I cannot thank you enough but thank you again. It is through people like you who strive for professional fairness as well as thoroughness, HCA has such a good reputation.

In any major corporate transaction, time is of the essence. PSGS's pragmatic commercial approach helped us manage the pensions aspects of our group re-structure to ensure a positive outcome for all parties.

Role

Julie acts as secretary to the trustees for several clients and co-ordinates day-to-day activities for a variety of appointments.

Background & experience

Julie began her career in 1985 in pension scheme administration working for British Shipbuilders in-house pensions department. She moved to Aon, where she had a senior role with full financial and operational responsibility for an administration team.

Julie joined Punter Southall Group in 1999 and subsequently moved to us in 2006. Her pension administration skills are highly regarded and she used these to develop our Internal Controls Review services.

In addition to her scheme secretary role, Julie also supports our professional trustees. She ensures governance and compliance requirements are met, and was involved in the implementation of our internet based scheme document management and trustee management tools.

Julie’s personal achievements often seem to involve survival - be that going on high, scary rides in Florida despite her fear of heights, or making it through the surprise birthday meal arranged by the PSGS team!
