As President and CEO, J.R. Toland leads the team responsible for continuing the unique culture established by our founder, the late John Savage. J.R. provides overall leadership for the organization and communicates its vision, strategy, and direction.

J.R. joined Savage and Associates in 1984. Before being named President and CEO, he focused on his role as Financial Advisor, assisting small business owners and corporate executives in providing quality retirement plans. In that capacity, he also designed tax-efficient business succession plans and executive benefit plans that helped companies attract and retain the best and brightest people.

He is a past board member for GAMA International, and a lifetime member of the Million Dollar Round Table. And he is past board chair for the Multiple Sclerosis Society and Central Catholic High School.
