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 a range of different projects. My main focus has been administration reviews, selections and transitions and adviser reviews, but I have also worked with clients on governance and trustee effectiveness.
I oversee our comprehensive supplier research programme and our thought leadership, making sure that we bring our best thinking to our clients and the wider industry.
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 Development Committee. I am APMI and PRINCE2 qualified and am now working through an MBA.
What is your background?
I started out as a pensions administrator, before moving into their Trustee Executive Services team with Mercer where I provided outsourced pensions management, project management and secretarial support to clients.
My background has shown me a wide variety of projects and issues and given me a decent technical grounding having once sat and calculated pensions!
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 down to the ground level.
Since joining Muse, I’ve built expertise on administration and the administration market. I drafted the PMI’s Key Principles to Administration Agreements, and lead on our triennial cost comparison survey, The Mercury Project.
What do you do for fun?
I’m currently grappling with the Portuguese language, having managed a reasonable level in Spanish. Other than that, you might find me reading, swimming, running or back in Portsmouth being Uncle to 6 exhausting kids.
I am Chair of Governors at a primary school in Kilburn, a charity Trustee for a local charity and foster cats for a local animal shelter.
