What's Your Passion?

Early in my career I recognized the complexity of pension plans and the challenges companies face in complying with and understanding the convoluted pension administration and funding rules. I enjoy bringing clarity and results in these situations. That's what ultimately led to my passion of finding simplistic solutions in complex systems.
