RETIREMENT PLAN SERVICES DIRECTOR
Tami learned early on the importance of being detail oriented. She began working at an ice cream parlor at the age of 14 and the owners were adamant about counting back change correctly: coins first, then the dollar bills.
Tami brings that same detail-oriented eye to everything she touches and is a valued member of the Leadership Team. As Retirement Plan Services Director at Trust Company of Illinois, her responsibilities include leading the plan administration team, serving as ERISA guidelines implementer, and ensuring that quality production levels and regulatory deadlines are met or exceeded. “I love doing work that helps to ensure a wonderful client experience,” she says.
Tami began her career as a trust accountant at HPL&S in Arlington Heights where she also developed a deep understanding of retirement plan consulting, testing and administration. She went on to RSM McGladrey Retirement Resources where she served for ten years as Director of Operations in their Chicago office. She holds a BS in Accounting from Bradley University and has earned CPC (Certified Pension Consultant), QPA (Qualified Pension Administrator) and QKC (Qualified 401(k) Consultant) designations from ASPPA (American Society of Pension Professionals and Actuaries).
For six years Tami served on the board of Family Shelter Service and completed their 48-hour domestic violence training allowing her to volunteer at the DuPage County Courthouse and on the hotline.
She loves to read, play volleyball and golf. For the past several years she was never far from a softball field cheering for her daughter who played softball at Rutgers University and UNC-Charlotte.
