Speaker Bio
Petros is a principal and shareholder in seven closely held financial service companies. These businesses work with 2,200 retirement plans, representing $9.2 billion in retirement plan assets, and support over 97,000 retirement plan participants. Through his businesses, Petros advises hundreds of employers, households, individuals, and institutional investors.

The eldest son of an immigrant small business owner and a schoolteacher, Petros was born and raised in Tacoma, Washington. After completing undergraduate studies at the University of Washington, Petros began his career in the technology sector at the world’s largest semiconductor manufacturing company.

Soon after earning an MBA from Arizona State University, Petros joined Spectrum Pension Consultants, the company his father founded, under challenging circumstances. After his father’s tragic passing from bladder cancer in 2005, Petros was called upon to lead the organization. Since then, the company has grown significantly, made strategic business acquisitions, expanded into new geographic markets, and delivered new service offerings to clients.

Bit by the entrepreneurial bug like his parents before him, in 2011 Petros co-founded GROUPIRA, a fintech company that empowers people to invest better within IRAs and enables investment advisers to grow their IRA businesses.

Passionate about giving back to the community, the Koumantaros family launched the Pano Koumantaros Cancer Research Fund, named after Petros’s father, which has raised over $1.7 Million in support of cancer research, care, and treatment initiatives.

The Puget Sound Business Journal honored Petros in 2013 as one of the region's 40 Under 40 -- an award recognizing the top business leaders under the age of 40 who excel in their industry and show dynamic leadership.

In 2018, Petros became a Financial Consultant with intellicents, a financial services firm with $5.0 billion in assets under management, $3.0 billion of which is ERISA Retirement Plans.

Petros has provided testimony to the U.S. Senate on retirement plan policies and speaks regularly at retirement plan industry conferences and professional societies. He served on the Alliance Benefit Group Board of Managers and the FIS Retirement Solutions Advisory Board. Petros is a credentialed member of the American Society of Pension Professionals and Actuaries and the National Association of Plan Advisors, and he serves on the National Association of Plan Advisors government affairs committee.

Petros lives in Seattle.
