Securian Adds Another Large Plan Expert to Retirement Sales Staff

September 3, 2014

ST. PAUL, Minn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Securian Retirement has strengthened its Institutional Retirement Group with the addition of Benjamin Thomason, J.D., as divisional vice president.

In his new role, Thomason fosters current relationships and builds new ones with advisors who specialize in the mid-to-large-plan market. He joined Securian from J.P. Morgan where he was in large market institutional retirement sales. During the previous decade, Thomason was at Fidelity Investments in retirement sales and private banking. He has a bachelor’s degree from James Madison University, Harrisonburg, VA and a law degree from Gonzaga University School of Law, Spokane, WA

“The ongoing expansion of our sales team is in part due to advisors’ overwhelming acceptance of our open architecture platform that features industry-leading fee levelization,” said Vince Giordano, national sales vice president, Retirement Plans. “Strong year-to-date sales results are an additional incentive for growing our sales team for all plan sizes.”

Since 1880, Securian Financial Group and its affiliates have provided financial security for individuals and businesses in the form of insurance, investments and retirement plans. Now one of the nation’s largest life insurance groups, it is the holding company parent of several companies.

Insurance products are issued by Minnesota Life Insurance Company in all states except New York where products are issued by Securian Life Insurance Company, a New York authorized insurer. Both companies are headquartered in Saint Paul, MN and each insurer is solely responsible for the financial obligations under the policies and contracts it issues. Product availability and features may vary by state.
