Janel Cross

Managing Partner
Align Retirement Plan Advisors


Janel’s career began just before the 9/11 attacks (2001). She founded Align as the Financial Crisis began (2007). Remembering how it feels to be afraid and having a tireless drive to help hard-working people are at the heart of everything she does. Her dedication was recognized by the National Association of Plan Advisors (Top Women Advisors, 2016) and Financial Times (Top Retirement Advisor, 2018). She was recognized as a Woman of Influence by Central PA Business Journal (2018). Janel’s influence and dedication extend beyond Align. Most notable is leading Lancaster’s MFG DAY Committee which introduces students to high-demand trade and technical careers. Lancaster’s Workforce Development Board recognized her commitment to improving the lives of youth through education and development (2018). Outside of work, you’ll find Janel with her husband and seven children – three human and four furry. As a family, they are enthusiastic advocates for pit bull rescue.
