“This is all part of having a vibrant organization where the employees realize, ‘The employer cares about us here, and they care about us after we leave here,”’ he said. Bucsek said he can show employers that it is easier and less expensive than they think to provide a retirement plan for their workers. And if the employer can’t afford to contribute to the 401K plan - or handle the administrative costs that come with it -- there are other solutions.” - John Bucsek, Managing Director MMTS, NJBIZ

“Done right, a team with balanced strengths, assigned roles, agreed goals and solid organizational structure can easily produce a triple payoff -- good for your client, good for your firm, and good for you!” - Bellaria Jimenez, Managing Director MMTS, Financial Advisor Magazine

“To be considered a specialist, or what many view to be an expert, there is no specific designation, license, or degree; rather, it is an ongoing educational experience the advisor maintains as part of their commitment to this area of competence. The single most important decision of a plan sponsor may be the choosing of an advisor, so we must highlight and present our expertise with great care to ensure that the small business owner both knows what we can do for them and trusts us.” - John Bucsek, Managing Director MMTS,

“One of the key things we’re seeing is the accountability has drastically changed, which is helping all the advisors working together,” she says. “As a sole practitioner, you hold yourself accountable. But in a team, everyone is…building toward a goal together. Peer accountability is very different -- you don’t want to let your team down.” - Bellaria Jimenez, Managing Director MMTS, Think Advisor
