Founder

Gareth has been acting as a responsible individual since 2003 and founded Assure UK after ten successful
years at Ash Shaw.

Gareth acts as scheme auditor and represents Assure UK for 20 pension schemes.

Gareth’s current appointments cover a wide variety of situations, including hybrid schemes with DB and DC sections, schemes closed to further accrual, reporting accountant for scheme administrators and other ad hoc projects. He particularly enjoys using his experience and leadership to steer trustee boards and those charged with governance to simplify their accounts preparation process and apply new assurance standards.
He has a good understanding of pension audit issues and served on the Institute of Chartered Accountants
Pensions Sub-Committee and Pensions Technical Discussion Group between 2009 and 2012. His position as a school governor helps his understanding of trustee challenges.
