Laura Egel

Retirement Plan Services Account Executive

  Retirement Plan Services Team

Laura Egel believes that humor helps connect people. “In all of the many different positions I’ve had over the years, she says, “laughing and sharing stories with my clients has been the most rewarding aspect of my work”. “I think it’s healthy to have a good sense of humor and laugh at the absurdities of life sometimes!”

As an Account Executive on the Retirement Plan Services Team, Laura uses her ability to foster strong connections along with her 25 years of experience in the industry to become a trusted guide and advisor to firm’s clients.

She began her career in the Checking Services department at Talman Federal Savings & Loan located at Six Corners in Chicago, IL. She progressed into Mortgage Servicing and Mortgage Loan processing at LaSalle Bank N.A and then into Retail Banking at American Chartered Bank where she specialized in IRA Administration.

While Laura loves building relationships that revolve around finance, she draws much of her energy from a quiet interaction with nature. John Muir’s quote “In every walk with nature one receives far more than one seeks,” expresses Laura’s affinity for the outdoors. She feels pure contentment and a deep connection with life when she is hiking in the mountains, walking along the ocean or running and cycling in the woods. An avid bird lover, Laura enjoys the different species that visit a large birdfeeder in her backyard. But her greatest joys are spending time with her husband and three children, traveling, attending Chicago Blackhawks games and gardening.
