ESOP Client Service Manager


in Telecommute / Appleton WI

What you'll do:

Looking for a career with the opportunity to learn and belong to a great team in a high growth business? Come talk with us! If you are a great communicator, with strong numerical critical thinking skills, enjoy problem-solving and working closely with outstanding clients – this is an opportunity you cannot pass up!

As a Client Service Manager on our Employee Stock Ownership Plan (ESOP) Administration team, you’ll manage and provide consultation to several key client accounts handling all aspects of their ESOP retirement plans. You’ll proactively build relationships with C-Suite executives, company owners, financial executives and HR personnel while balancing technical activities of the plans.

Here are a few examples of what you’ll do:

  • Develop a working knowledge of ESOP technical requirements to create and propose solutions to meet client needs.
  • Understand and implement key features on plan documents such as performing trust accounting, compliance testing and government reporting.
  • Take the lead on client ESOP allocations, reports, participant statements, and distribution/diversification and cash management services.
  • Communicate with clients proactively to assist with questions, plan complexity discussions, education, participant data, plan administrations procedures, etc.

What you'll get from us:

  • Competitive pay, benefits, perks and more. We’ll reward you for the skills and experience you have. Find out more.
  • Respect for your unique perspective. Diversity, inclusion and empowerment are at the core of our culture.
  • A career, not just a job. Principal is a place where you can learn and innovate. Do important work. Make an impact. And achieve your professional goals.
  • The ability to have a great job and a great life. Sure, work is important. But so is your family. And your friends. And your community. That’s why we provide the flexibility needed to find the right balance between your job and the rest of your life.


While we prefer those with ESOP or retirement plan design and/or administration experience, we’re willing to train highly motivated people. Candidates will need:

  • Bachelor's degree or equivalent experience. (Accounting or Finance preferred)
  • 6+ years related business experience.
  • Strong accounting, numerical critical thinking and analytical skills.
  • Strong written and verbal communication skills, including problem-solving and negotiation skills.
  • Open to occasional overnight travel (1-3 times per year) to participate in customer meetings may be necessary.
  • Ability to balance working independently with working in a team environment to meet customer needs and achieve overall goals.
  • Possess a strong understanding of accounting and record-keeping systems and PC applications.

Willing to consider applicants at multiple levels based on experience.


Our ESOP Administration team is headquartered in Appleton, WI, with offices throughout the U.S. We are open to various locations.
