BAXTER, MN, September 26, 2016 -- As a sign of its continued growth in the marketplace, Integrated Retirement, a leading provider of retirement plan content and training, has added Todd Berghuis to its team of ERISA experts. The addition of Mr. Berghuis as Senior ERISA Counsel deepens Integrated Retirement's technical expertise and expands its capacity to help clients navigate the increasingly complex regulatory retirement plan environment.
"We're extremely fortunate to have Todd on board," says Pam O'Rourke, Senior Vice President and Managing Principal of Training and Content Services at Integrated Retirement. "He's highly-regarded in the industry and has been front and center in helping to shape retirement plan legislation and regulation, including the DOL's recently released Conflict of Interest rule. Especially given the current environment, we're excited that our clients will be able to benefit from his incredible wealth of knowledge."
In addition to providing technical and compliance support to clients, Mr. Berghuis will be Integrated Retirement's liaison to the IRS, the DOL and other governmental entities. He will also continue to serve as Chairman of the DOL Subcommittee of ASPAA's Government Affairs Committee and to speak on technical and regulatory issues around the country.
Mr. Berghuis has been an ERISA attorney and consultant in the retirement and financial services industry for more than 30 years.
