First Financial Resources CEO Jud Imhoff Adds Mike Webb and Charlsey Baumeier in National Headquarters Move to Tech-Savvy Irvine
Irvine, California, December 7, 2017 – Finishing a record sales and membership growth year, some companies might be satisfied to congratulate themselves. Not the case with First Financial Resources (FFR). The 100% member-owned financial advisor group is focused on implementing the 2018 strategy even as 2017 comes to an end. Armed with that mindset, the management team and staff are moving the national headquarters in December to tech-savvy Irvine, California and bringing on additional national team members. “With a record year in 2017, it is the perfect opportunity to step into “what’s next” for FFR,” explains CEO Jud Imhoff.
Located at 100 Spectrum Center Drive, Suite 400, Irvine, CA 92618, FFR’s new national headquarters sits in the “work/play” hub of the Irvine Spectrum. Besides increased office space, the FFR national team has easy access to other growing companies, shopping, restaurants, major freeways and the many residential communities nearby. “Whether it is a business lunch, a collaboration session or the need to run a few errands, our new location gives the team local options. Overall, it helps with a healthy “work-play” balance,” Imhoff adds.
Anticipating the longer-term strategic sales and marketing needs, CEO Imhoff recently hired two new employees, Michael Webb and Charlsey Baumeier. Michael Webb is National Sales Director and will work with new and existing FFR advisors as well as the company’s B2B relationships through the network of insurance carrier wholesalers. Charlsey Baumeier is a Specialized National Sales Director. Her focus is wealth, estate and tax planning. Baumeier will help pair FFR member advisors with legal professionals drawing from a strategic, nationwide network of attorneys.
“We are known for our club-like exclusivity, ‘go-direct, keep control’ business model and sense of community. It attracts some of the top financial advisors in the country to membership. Bringing on experienced team members as we grow helps us preserve our business model and culture,” Imhoff articulates.
