BESTrustees adds Karen Theobald to growing Trustee Team

BESTrustees is delighted to announce the appointment of Karen Theobald to its growing team of Trustee Executives. Karen joined us at the beginning of February and brings a strong and invaluable blend of trustee and adviser experience.

Based in Scotland, and a member of the PMI, Karen previously worked as a Pensions Consultant with Conduent (formally Buck Consultants) for almost 20 years, where she was also Chair of Trustee of the Buck pensions scheme from 2010. During this period Karen developed a robust governance framework and guided the scheme through revisions to investment strategy, restructuring events and managing the impacts of global corporate activity.

In her role as a senior pensions consultant, Karen was responsible for the cohesive delivery of client services, as well as initiating and developing a number of technical solutions including Data Journey administration services, benefit audit services and PPF actuarial and administration services.

Alan Pickering, Chairman of BESTrustees commented:

“We are delighted that Karen has chosen to join us and feel certain that her personality and deep experience will considerably enhance the offering which we bring to the professional trustee market place, particularly in Scotland.  Karen’s considerable experience, both as an adviser and a Chair of Trustees certainly adds to the balanced approach with which we can meet the needs of our growing client base.”
