About R. P. Mills Associates, Inc.
R. P. Mills Associates, Inc. was formed in Allentown Pennsylvania in 1961. It was owned and operated by Robert P. Mills until his death in 1969. The company was then purchased by Charles F. Haggerty and George R. Hood who were two of his employees at the time of his death. It was incorporated in the state of Pennsylvania on August 18, 1967. In 1988 George retired and Charles bought his shares of stock and became the sole owner. He continued to grow the business until he retired in 1998. At that time, Charles sold the business to Barry J. Andruscavage and Jan A. Burke who had both been employed for about 20 years. After another 17 years, Jan retired in 2017 at which time Barry became the sole owner of the corporation. The company still resides in Allentown as a small business and services retirement plans for companies within approximately a 50 mile radius. It started as a pension consulting firm and continues to perform Third Party Administration for several hundred retirement plans. Over the years, R. P. Mills has provided services to thousands of companies and had the opportunity to help people accumulate enough savings to retire with financial stability.
