Greg Phillips, 401(k) Operations Assistant
What is so intriguing about the financial services field is being able to see the first-hand impact that you can have on individual’s financial well-being, retirement readiness, and, in turn, their happiness and comfort. At Twelve Points, this impact is built through family oriented relationships and friendships, two things that I value dearly in my life.
