Strategic Retirement Partners was chosen as one of this year’s top-75 firms based on employer and employee surveys, evaluating company culture, benefits, career paths, and more.

Jeff Cullen, SRP’s Managing Partner shared “Work-life balance is the theme at Strategic Retirement Partners where 70% of the team works from home in a cloud-based environment.

Powerhouse LA Team Joins Strategic Retirement Partners

Doug Bermudez and Erin Hall have joined Strategic Retirement Partners (SRP), a leading national retirement plan aggregator. Through their retirement plan consulting practice in the Los Angeles area, Bermudez and Hall work with organizations to drive overall retirement plan health with a focus on three pillars of service; fiduciary process, plan design and administration efficiency, and participant outcomes.

When asked why their team is making a move to SRP, Erin Hall states, “SRP has a passion and commitment to the retirement plan industry that perfectly aligns with what Doug and I have built with the Bermudez/Hall Retirement Group.”

Doug Bermudez added, “We’ve known the SRP team for a number of years. When the time came for us to make a move, we knew that SRP would provide the collaborative environment, back office operations, technology, and human capital we need to continue to deliver exceptional service to our clients.”

This partnership expands SRP’s footprint into the key market of Los Angeles and brings their offices to 19 nationwide. Additionally, as part of joining SRP, the Los Angeles based team will have the resources and strength of Global Retirement Partners (GRP) at their fingertips. Global Retirement Partners is a nationally recognized leader in the retirement plan consulting space, surpassing $38B in plan assets with over 4,200 plan clients.

Doug has over 25 years of tenure in the financial services industry and was with Wells Fargo Advisors since 2007. Erin joined Doug in 2012 after over a decade of working with corporate retirement plans. The team is leaving Wells Fargo Advisors, where they had been providing high-level service to both corporations and individuals through comprehensive financial advice.

“The commitment that Doug and Erin have shown to their clients and our industry is what initially caught SRP’s attention,” shared SRP’s Managing Partner, Jeff Cullen. “But what excites us more is their alignment with our culture and core values.”
