“It’s a pleasure working with key members of the PSGS team: their experience and leadership means that they know how to get the job done, working in partnership with fellow trustees, employers and advisers to achieve the best result for members.”
“The work that has been done has been delivered beyond expectations.”
“When requesting information by email, I have noticed that there is 'out of hours activity' to answer me. I regard this as a stand out 'above and beyond' - impressed.”
“The trustee training was a very well-paced overview which gave opportunity to explore ideas and question more deeply at key points.”
“The trustee training course covered a wide variety of subjects which gives a good basis for future discussion and decision making during trustee meetings.”
“Many organisations and people provide the services that clients need. In my opinion, the differentiator is in the way those services are provided and to that extent, Kathy embodies the qualities that I have come to value from PSITL. Kathy is organised but not fussy; diligent but not dogmatic; persistent without being pushy and compliant in a pragmatic way. Whilst she takes ownership and drives issues forward, Kathy is a team player who uses her and her colleagues experience to provide services to her trustee client whilst working closely with those like me representing the sponsoring employer. She works collaboratively with advisers but constructively challenges the scope of services, fees and service standards whenever necessary and makes sure that member needs are always taken into account. I enjoy working with her and trust that she will deliver what is required by the trustee and the members they represent in a manner satisfactory to the sponsoring employer. ”
Lisa is responsible for managing all day-to-day office activities.
Lisa’s previous roles have been customer service based. She worked at SAS (Scandinavian Airlines) for five years, where she started at the boarding gates as a ground staff member and progressed to a supervisory role controlling an efficient one hour turnaround of aircraft. Along the way she met some famous faces and travelled to the USA, Cuba, Mexico, Thailand and Malaysia.
Lisa has been personal assistant to our Managing Director, Wayne Phelan, for the majority of her time since joining us in 2008. She arranges meetings, looks after the team, organises finance and billing and makes tea for the boss. She enjoys the variety within her job and never knows what is going to happen from one day to the next.
Lisa is not afraid to get her hands dirty - she becomes a plumber when the tap is leaking and offers printing services when the ink toner is running low.
Lisa is always smiling. If you can’t see her, you can definitely hear her infectious laugh throughout the office. She can even claim to have had a good old chinwag with Lionel Richie!
