Client feedback


The trustee training was a very well-paced overview which gave opportunity to explore ideas and question more deeply at key points.

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.
It’s a pleasure working with key members of the HR Trustees 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.

Role

Colin is a Client Director at HR Trustees Limited. He acts as professional trustee to both defined benefit (DB) and defined contribution (DC) clients. He is chair of the pension trustee board for two arrangements of £200m+.

Background & experience

Colin started his pensions career in consultancy with Leslie & Godwin in the early seventies. He assisted scheme managers transition schemes from old to new code and contracted schemes out of the State Earnings Related Pension Scheme.

In 1979, he moved to Hogg Robinson Benefit Consultants. Here he undertook special projects relating to pension scheme mergers and was responsible for defined benefit (DB) pension schemes helping sponsors implement scheme changes.

Colin has worked with a wide range of trustee board members and advisers. In addition to pension schemes, his trusteeships include employee benefit trusts, escrow agent and healthcare trusts.

Colin has survived parenthood and is pleased his children still speak to him after their teenage years!
