One of the largest sales and service distributors of Pella® Windows and Doors has chosen the Bethesda-based wealth manager to help improve retirement readiness among its employees

BETHESDA, Md.--()--Seventy2 Capital Wealth Management, a Bethesda-based, independent wealth management practice, is pleased to announce that it has been chosen by Pella Mid-Atlantic as its retirement plan advisor. Pella Mid-Atlantic, based in Beltsville, MD, has become one of the largest providers of Pella® Windows and Doors to residential, trade, and commercial clients. Since it was originally established in 1931, the company has grown to include 6 locations and showrooms throughout Maryland, Virginia, Washington, DC and Delaware.

Pella Mid-Atlantic CEO, George Ballman, recognized a need to help its employees better prepare for their retirement. “Our goal is to provide a competitive and comprehensive employee benefits package. We believe a greater emphasis on retirement readiness is a long-term financial benefit we should offer our employees. After a review of the existing 401(k) plan against other options in the market, we saw an opportunity to meaningfully impact our employees’ ability to save for retirement while reducing plan costs,” says Ballman. “Our partnership with Seventy2 Capital is one more step we are taking to ensure that Pella Mid-Atlantic continues to be a leader in the industry.”

Seventy2 Capital Co-founder and Partner, Paul Carlson, noted that, “In today’s competitive job market, a well-designed benefits package is critical to attracting and retaining talent. We are proud to have been chosen by Pella Mid-Atlantic to help execute on their objective of being a leading employer in the region and improving the financial well-being of their employees. Too many people are waiting until ‘tomorrow’ to begin saving for retirement, but Pella is helping make this important first step as simple and beneficial as possible for all of its employees.”

Upon transition to the new plan, Carlson and Financial Advisor, Nicholas Shealy, will provide Pella Mid-Atlantic with fiduciary support; annual plan benchmarking; on-going, financial education for employees; regular investment plan reviews and 1-on-1 meetings to help employees maximize their benefits. Seventy2 Capital’s holistic approach to retirement plan design focuses on customizing programs that increase retirement readiness, maximize plan participation and help clients meet their fiduciary and financial responsibilities.
