With 25 years of experience in leadership roles within the retirement business, Stig has made a significant commitment to the design and promotion of best practice for retirement plans. His experience, having spanned all aspects of the business, gives him unique perspective and insight.

In a word, organization. Over the years, I have come to understand, appreciate, and value a truly organized experience. I believe organization is a gift we can give those we interact with, one that pays huge dividends.
