“I am looking forward to joining BESTrustees and pursuing my interest pension trustee work. There is clearly a lot of change in Pensions and a lot of new challenges too, so I know it is going to be an exciting time. I was looking for somewhere I could bring some of my experience and knowledge to bear for  scheme members and I believe BESTrustees and their exceptional people is the place to do that.”
