The FuturePlan sales team's expansion is intended to grow relationships with strategic institutional recordkeeping and financial advisor partners while enhancing regional and consultative support for retirement plan clients.

Hollis will drive sales with financial advisors and strategic alliance platforms while also coordinating sales activities for key employer relationships. With more than 10 years of retirement industry experience from roles with Seven Hills Group and Taylor Wealth Solutions, Hollis fills the role vacated by Mark Wiggins, who was recently appointed as FuturePlan's divisional vice president for the Southeast and Southwest regions.

Krzeminski will cultivate institutional relationships to explore new opportunities and deepen FuturePlan's relationships with existing partners. His sales, relationship management, and project leadership skills have been honed during his more than 13 years of retirement plan industry experience at Vanguard, Lincoln Financial, and Quantum Strategies.

DePonte will participate in the development of—and ultimately be responsible for—the implementation and ongoing monitoring of FuturePlan's sales operations strategy. He brings more than 30 years of experience to his new position and previously held leadership roles at Prudential, The Phoenix Companies, and Hartford Life Insurance.

"In welcoming Jay, John, and Lou to the FuturePlan sales team, we're giving our key institutional partners, financial advisors, and business-owner clients access to more than 50 combined years of industry experience and expertise," states Kasey Price, FuturePlan's head of sales. "I look forward to working with them to develop and execute strategies to take FuturePlan's sales efforts to the next level and cement our organization's standing as a leading national retirement TPA."
