Noble Consulting Services, Inc. was established in 1987 by our founder, Pamela Noble. She started the business out of her home with just a few plans. Over the years, she outgrew her home and sublet space downtown while adding more employees and more plans. The company developed the reputation for providing quality work and being able to wrap around any plan to provide the services clients needed as well as being known for solving problems and setting problem plans on the right path.
In 1994, Jan Davis joined the team as a junior associate almost straight out of college with very little knowledge of 401(k) plans or the industry. Over the years, Jan worked her way through most of the positions in the firm and in 2000 was offered ownership in the company. Noble-Davis Consulting continued to grow under the joint direction of Pamela Noble and Jan Davis. Today, we service over 500 clients, 20,000 plan participants and over $1 billion in plan assets. In 2013, Pamela Noble moved to Florida and is currently enjoying her semi-retirement while she continues to work part time for the company.
Our mission is to provide you with peace of mind for all aspects of your retirement and welfare plans. We strive to exceed your expectations in service while making sure we get every detail correct. Let us help you find the perfect plan design and introduce you to a world of worry-free plan administration.
Our focus is making your plan worry-free. You don’t need to worry when the law changes since we keep up with current law and automatically amend your plan when needed. If you forgot to send your information in, we will follow up with you. If you forgot to sign your Form 5500, we will call you and make sure it gets signed. If your work force changes, we will make suggestions on how your plan can work better. If your goals change, we can alter the design of your plan to help you meet those goals.
We are independent and can work with any platform, custodian, investment advisor or accountant. We don’t try to put your plan “in a box” and will wrap ourselves around whatever your needs are. Our fees are transparent and offer a great value for the services we provide. And if we make a mistake, we’ll tell you and fix it at our own expense. It all adds up to peace of mind for your plan.
