One year after joining Benetech, Inc., a national actuarial and 401(k) plan administration firm, in 1989, Mike was promoted to Regional Vice President and moved to Chicago, where he developed the firm's Midwest territory. He then joined Lord Abbett & Co. in 1995, where he was named Director of Retirement Planning, and promoted to executive partnership in 2002.
