Harrington Exits LPL

Bruce Harrington, LPL Financial's SVP of retirement solutions, has left the broker/dealer.

Harrington joined in September of last year (see “Harrington’s In For Retirement at LPL”).

While at LPL, Harrington expanded the offerings to LPL’s independent retirement plan-focused advisers. The company formed the Retirement Plan Consulting Group at LPL, which introduced the Retirement Plus Program to its financial advisers. The program offers an array of retirement plan products, as well as recordkeeping and plan administration services through CPI Qualified Plan Consultants, Guardian Retirement Services, ING, and The Principal Financial Group (see “LPL Expands Services for FAs in Retirement Plan Space“).

“It continues to be business as usual at the retirement solutions group, which remains fully focused on serving LPL financial advisers with their retirement space needs,” LPL spokesman Joseph Kuo told PLANADVISER, while making no comment about who would take over for Harrington.

Before joining LPL, Harrington was managing director at Cogent Research, a Cambridge, Massachusetts-based a market research and consulting firm, after serving eight years as vice president and director of product development and marketing for MFS Investment Management.
