Newport Group Acquires Personnel, Assets from The Todd Organization

Nov 16, 2016

Walnut Creek, CA—November 16, 2016— Newport Group, a leading provider of retirement plans, insurance, and consulting services, announced today that it has acquired certain retirement and insurance plans from The Todd Organization of Ohio and hired the key client relationship managers who service these plans.
“This acquisition by Newport Group will allow Todd’s Cleveland-area office to focus on customer development and marketing, and places the responsibility for service and administration on Newport Group, which has great expertise in these areas,” said Todd Principal Scott Holton.
Holton went on to note that there will be no changes to the plans acquired by Newport Group, and that service continuity will be ensured. The same Todd employees who have serviced these plans in the past will continue to do so as employees of Newport Group, and these clients will continue to communicate and work directly with their current client relationship managers.
“Todd and Newport Group have a longstanding successful business relationship, and in fact this month marks the ninth anniversary of our joint marketing partnership,” said Newport Senior Vice President, Non Qualified Plans Jeff Wirth. “This continued integration of our administration and servicing capabilities is further evidence of the strength of our partnership and its benefits to our clients and their plan participants.”
