ABA Retirement Program Names New Chief

The American Bar Association Retirement Funds Board of Directors has named Scarlett Ungurean as the program's executive director.

A news release said Ungurean will be in charge of the overall management of the program that services more than 4,000 law firms with more than 40,000 participants and $3 billion in assets. The program operates as a not-for-profit and provides low-cost 401(k) plans and fiduciary oversight to law firms.

In this position, Ungurean, who previously was the senior manager of the Defined Contribution Plan at the Boeing Company, brings more than 13 years of experience in the retirement industry. She joins Bradley Blewett, the program’s associate executive director, who supervises the program’s sales and marketing efforts.

“Scarlett Ungurean’s diverse and comprehensive experience with retirement plans will greatly benefit the ABA Retirement Funds Program’s current and future clients and will complement the expanded sales effort headed by Brad Blewett,” noted Harry Hathaway, president of the Board of the ABA Retirement Funds.

Before joining ABA Retirement Funds, Ungurean reviewed Boeing’s plan design and assisted with investment manager search and monitoring. Prior to The Boeing Company, she worked for Mercer Investment Consulting, the announcement said.
