“Their pragmatic approach helps with quick and easy decision making. Another approach might have made things more difficult.”
“PSGS was chosen because of their knowledge of the subject and awareness of our particular schemes.”
“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. ”
“PSGS offered the right support at very short notice, at reasonable cost, when we really needed it”
“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. ”
“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.”
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!
