Po Bender

Director of Finance

PoPo Bender has worked with Asset Retention since 2005 and has played a pivotal role in its success.

She went on to compete in three U.S. National Figure Skating Championships in 1999, 2000, and 2001.

Upon meeting her husband, Troy, she quickly saw the value and the benefits that Asset Retention brought their clients.

She is also very creative in developmental ideas and writes the 7th page of the newsletter published every 2 months, titled, “Po’s Posts” that our clients receive bi-monthly.
