“PSIT were overall more professional than others.”
“The trustee training was a very well-paced overview which gave opportunity to explore ideas and question more deeply at key points.”
“They deliver above expectation when the scheme has a particular challenge.”
“I enjoy working with PSIT and we have a very positive relationship. I was new to pensions and found them very helpful.”
“Where HR Trustees are appointed to act in conjunction with an existing body of trustees, we have found that they are quickly able to fit in well and gain the trust and respect of their co-trustees. ”
“In any major corporate transaction, time is of the essence. HR Trustees’ pragmatic commercial approach helped us manage the pensions aspects of our group re-structure to ensure a positive outcome for all parties. ”
Gillian is a Client Director within PSIT Secretarial Services. She acts as secretary to the trustees for several of our clients and also assists with pensions project work.
Gillian worked in pensions in Edinburgh and South Africa before joining Punter Southall in 1999. She became a Principal in 2002 and was responsible for the Guildford office administration team.
Gillian was the driving force behind initiatives to obtain the Plain English Crystal Mark for member communications and the annual internal controls review. Latterly, she was Head of Administration Client Services and implemented auto-enrolment for various clients.
Gillian has acted as a secretary to the trustees since 2009 and transferred to PSIT to focus on this role. She is a PMI Fellowship Network Ambassador and is also secretary of the NAPF Thames Valley committee.
Gillian’s project management and organisational skills come in handy outside of work too, whether that’s for planning events like her son’s three day wedding or navigating her way around Moscow and St Petersburg.
