Carday Associates, Inc.
A Pioneer in the Industry
In 1947, the Taft-Hartley Act was passed permitting joint labor/management welfare and pension funds. In 1952 Carday Associates, a
partnership, was formed to provide consulting and administrative services to these new funds. The partnership was started by Carlton
R. Sickles and David Goldberg with a staff of about sixteen employees. Carday Associates was instrumental in designing and establishing
many of these new funds in all parts of the country.
Carday Associates incorporated in 1959 and today is a leader in the administration
of all types of multi-employer benefit plans, including but not limited to health, pension, apprentice, training and education, and
Carday Associates, Inc. has its headquarters in Columbia, Maryland and operates four branch offices. The branches
are located in Hagerstown, Maryland, Washington D.C. and two individual branches in Pewaukee, Wisconsin. All of the offices
have a complete staff of employee benefit experts to serve our clients.
Carday's co-founder, Carlton R. Sickles, was continuously
active in the firm, except for four years while serving as a congressman for the State of Maryland, until his passing in January 2004.
An innovator and leader in the industry, he held such prominent positions as president of the International Foundation of Employee
Benefit Plans, the largest non-profit educational organization in the field, and president of the Association of Private Pension and
Simone L. Rockstroh, daughter of Carlton R. Sickles, took over the helm as president of the corporation in 1997.

and he has held postions of increasing responsibility since then until becoming the Owner and CEO in 2011. He is a frequent speaker
for the International Foundation of Employee Benefit Plans and has served on their Board of Directors.
