Responding to requests from its customers, a local pension administration support company has launched a new international division that will target Pacific Rim clientele.

Shimamura comes to Dorsa Consulting from KPMGÂs New York City offices where he served as a compensation and benefits consultant. Shimamura has more than 10 years experience advising companies on pension plan funding, administration and accounting issues. He has also worked in the Third Party Administration industry.
ÂThis is a very exciting business opportunity that allows me to grow professionally and to be with a growing company,Â said Shimamura.
A native of Japan, Shimamura has an MBA from the University of Tampa, is an Enrolled Actuary, is an Associate of the Society of Actuaries and is a Member of the American Academy of Actuaries.
ÂHaving the new international division puts Dorsa Consulting in a position to not only grow tremendously this year, it helps us to be able to coordinate administration services with numerous companies whose parent companies are in the Pacific Rim,Â said John McCrary, CRA,CRC, principal and managing partner of Dorsa Consulting. ÂHaving known Keizo and seen his work for about 10 years now, I am confident he is going to be a huge asset to our firm.Â
Shimamura, together with Actuarial Analyst Panrong Xiao, QPA, QKA, who is a native of China, Dorsa Consulting will be able to bolster its services to Asian companies and companies whose U.S. subsidiaries are based in Asia.
Earlier this month, Dorsa Consulting launched MyPensionPlan.Info, an interactive Internet platform that allows pension participants to log on to their account 24-hours a day using a secure Web browser. Once pension participants have logged on, they can print their benefit statements, review projected benefit calculations, review their annual account statement and even calculate Âon-the-flyÂ their monthly estimated benefit if they retire at a certain age. The platform also provides educational information on Social Security and a dictionary of pension fund terminology.
