My experience is in outsourced pensions management/ trustee secretarial, trustee governance software, administration and advisor reviews
What do you do?
I am a Consultant and like to get involved in as much as I can. I work on a range of projects covering governance, administration, adviser reviews, trustee effectiveness, and everything in between!
Internally, I’m responsible for our supplier research and our thought leadership. So, I pen the odd article here and there and send the occasional tweet out into the unsuspecting world.
Outside of Muse, I am a member and Social Committee Chair for the PMI London Group Committee, and a co-opted member of the PMI's Membership and Commercial Development Committee. I am PMI and PRINCE2 qualified.
What is your background?
I started out in Mercer’s administration business, before moving into their Governance, Secretarial and Outsourced Pensions Management team in 2011.
My work has covered a wide variety including communications, MND processes, administration reviews, valuation negotiations, adviser selection and review, and business planning and strategy.
What do you bring to Muse?
Well, apart from my wit (and sarcasm!), my practical experience of administration and governance allows me to speak with clients from the perspective of actually having done the work, and knowing how the overall strategy filters done to the ground level.
Since joining Muse in 2013, I’ve built my knowledge on administration, particularly focusing on costs and contracts. I drafted the PMI’s Key Principles to Administration Agreements, and was involved in The Mercury Project cost comparison survey that we run for large schemes.
What do you do for fun?
I’m currently grappling with the Spanish language and plotting my return to the cockpit of a Piper PA-28. Other than that, you might find me reading, swimming, ambling around London secretly lost but determined not to appear so, or back in Portsmouth being Uncle to 4 exhausting kids.
I am also a School Governor of a new academy school in Kilburn.
