“I would recommend them to anyone - I have dealt with a number of other independent trustee firms and would rate PSIT as the best. We are very happy with Mark and the service we get.”
“In my experience, not all professional trustees are able to cope with tricky or potentially confrontational situations. I find HR Trustees has massive experience in getting involved, earning the respect of others and resolving such issues. They get stuck in – they are a first rate team.”
“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.”
“PSIT were overall more professional than others.”
“We are extremely pleased with the appointment we made. The way Ian and Kerry react to us and work with us is brilliant. We are very happy.”
“Ian has added more value than we thought he would at the start… which shows it pays to go with someone who is doing the job of a professional trustee as their bread and butter.”
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.
