Victoria has a background working corporate pensions and is now a Professional Trustee on defined benefit and hybrid schemes with assets from £30m to over £2bn.

Victoria’s has over twenty years of experience in senior corporate benefits, pensions and reward roles at PepsiCo, BT and Sky. This has given her a strong understanding of the perspective of sponsor companies and how they operate. As well as strong collaboration and stakeholder management skills, her corporate roles have given her experience of board-level decision making processes and working with UK and non-UK parent organisations.

Victoria has over 15 years of experience as a Trustee, including both Trustee Board and Sole Trustee appointments. She has wide experience including DB and DC investment reviews, adviser reviews, governance reviews, member communication initiatives and corporate changes. Her particular strengths include her team player approach, her broad background and her focus on achieving agreed objectives.

Victoria has a first class degree in Economics from Newcastle University and has been an accredited Professional Trustee since 2020. In her free time Victoria loves the great outdoors and is often found on her bike in Richmond Park or walking, whatever the weather.

BACK TO TEAM

If my experience working on the corporate side of pensions taught me anything it is how to work with a wide range of people. In my view, efficient governance, effective management of advisers and strong collaboration with all the key stakeholders are key to achieving the objectives for the scheme and its members.
