“The trustee training was a very well-paced overview which gave opportunity to explore ideas and question more deeply at key points.”
“I wanted to look at the effectiveness of our trustee board, so Gillian, our PSGS scheme secretary, provided their trustee self-assessment tool to help me gather thoughts and opinions from others on the board. The tool was extremely easy to use and asked all the right questions to help me collect the information I needed as Trustee Chair. It is a great example of the way PSGS shares knowledge with their clients and makes dealing with key governance issues easy. As well as enabling me to meet one of the Regulator’s 21st century trusteeship requirements, using the tool has flagged trustee training needs and ways we could improve trustee meetings further. ”
“I found the trustee training really beneficial, highly recommended. I am not a trustee, I represent the employer and I think it will be valuable for me in future, having a better understanding of the trustees' perspective.”
“The Trustee Training course is very good. Excellent coverage of material presented in an easy-to-digest manner and quality of presentation by both presenters. ”
“Very professional and engaged service.”
“They have helped us save much more and created a cohesive plan to de-risk whilst building an integrated pension team.”
Kevin chairs the pension schemes for several multinational organisations and manages other trustee appointments.
Kevin first worked as a tax consultant for a ‘Big Four’ accountancy firm before moving into pensions, where his initial technical role provided him with a clear understanding of ongoing governance and risk management.
Kevin joined us in 2002 and has extensive experience of all aspects of running pension schemes, including sitting on specialist subcommittees for audit, member discretions and communications. He has taken schemes through valuation negotiations, investment strategy reviews and implementations.
Kevin has taken a leading role in various projects to manage pension scheme liabilities through closures to future accrual, incentive exercises and alternative funding arrangements. He is responsible for a range of pension schemes across a variety of sectors.
Kevin enjoys photography, taking part in charity sporting events and is particularly proud of displaying and running his vintage car!
