Client feedback


​Their pragmatic approach helps with quick and easy decision making. Another approach might have made things more difficult.
Mark Assinder,

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.
Dave Strain,

Ever increasing regulation has placed a heavy burden on trustees both in terms of time and the risk of non-compliance. HR Trustees has the experience and the resources to help trustees manage these burdens.
Mark Atkinson,

PSIT was chosen because of their knowledge of the subject and awareness of our particular schemes.

Trustee, Lansing Linde
​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.
Katherine Breading,

PSIT were overall more professional than others.

Role

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.

Background & experience

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.
