Claire joins PSGS from Barnett Waddingham (BW), where she was a Principal and spent the first 15 years of her career after joining as a graduate actuary. Having qualified as an actuary, she undertook a lengthy secondment working with an in-house administration team for one of the UK’s largest pension schemes. With new skills and experience she moved to the Pension Management team within BW. As a member of the management board, she was a key driver of the team’s growth.
In her new role, Claire will support PSGS clients with a broad range of outsourced and consultancy services from pension scheme management, governance and secretarial, to end game planning, board effectiveness and risk management. She will also play a key role in business development to further expand PSGS’ client portfolio.
Claire said: “I am very excited to join Punter Southall Governance Services – the team stand out for their impressive range of skills and experiences, tailoring solutions to meet their client’s needs. They are also all governance practitioners. Most importantly there is a great workplace culture, as I’m a true believer that happy team equals happy clients!
In the past, I’ve supported large and small schemes with many complex challenges. I look forward to using my expertise to help our clients and further expand the PSGS business.”
Wayne Phelan, PSGS Chief Executive Officer, commented:
“Claire brings many years’ expertise in pensions governance, compliance and risk and new business. She’ll be a real asset to the team.
Claire joins at a time of major regulatory change in pensions and her broad experience will be invaluable in guiding schemes and trustees through the challenges ahead.”
