Deschutes Spotlight: Diane Bella - Retirement Plan Expert
Deschutes Investment Consulting, LLC. is honored to congratulate Diane Bella on 22 years with the company.
Diane is our Corporate Retirement Plan Administrator and has been an invaluable resource to Deschutes throughout the years. She provides insight, advice, and guidance to our clients on their plans and as a mentor to other staff members.
CEO MacGregor Hall states, “One of the most important things she does is to selflessly give her time to helping others in the firm become more of an expert in their jobs. She anticipates what issues a client might have and addresses them proactively. In other words, a true professional and one of our secret weapons.”
Diane’s role is as varied as it is valued. She has a deep understanding of retirement plan administration, and she ably assists our clients in that capacity. When questions arise, she’s a great resource, and when we’re onboarding a new client or altering a plan’s investment fund line up, Diane has the knowledge and the organizational skills to move the process forward.
Since joining Deschutes in 2000, Diane has appreciated the opportunity to develop personal relationships with the clients we serve. Participants who need help often look to her, trusting that she can find the answers they seek. She enjoys delivering top-tier service that is personal and delivered with honesty and integrity.
In her downtime, Diane loves to get her hands dirty. Her roses, azaleas, and wildflowers provide joy to her family and neighbors.
Diane holds a Bachelor of Science from Penn State University. Her background includes stints as a senior pension analyst at West Coast Trust and a pension administrator at Bankers Systems.
