About Us

Jack A. Cross, President & CEO

Jack began his retirement plan career in 1978 with Shadur, LaVine & Associates, one of the largest and most respected private retirement plan operations on the West Coast. His experience in administration, design, actuarial compliance and management lead to his assuming management responsibility for Integrated Financial in Orange County in 1985 and subsequently for both the Orange and San Diego County operations.

In 1988 Jack became a Senior Vice President of IDS/American Express and managed the pension operation for IDS in Southern California. In 1990, with the sale of the IDS/American Express operation, Jack moved to Frailey & Associates, Inc., a small, well known regional firm and assumed responsibility for consulting and marketing. In 1999 Jack joined ACI, a larger boutique firm in Southern California and in 2000 became a partner.

Jack formed his own firm in 2006 in order to bring a fresh approach to building dynamic retirement plan strategies that provide evolving and economical results for clients.
