Great-West Appoints More Regional Sales Directors

Great-West Retirement Services has appointed Thomas R. Mordaunt and Jason C. Smoot as regional sales directors for its 401(k) business.

Mordaunt and Smoot will work closely with brokers, registered investment advisers (RIAs), consultants, third-party administrators, and wirehouse broker/dealers to support the distribution of Great-West Retirement Services’ 401(k) products in upstate New York, and in northern Virginia and Washington, D.C., respectively.

According to a press release, Mordaunt joins Great-West from John Hancock, where he worked for the past six years as an external wholesaler and was responsible for a similar territory. Smoot previously was with Principal Financial Group for 11 years, working as an external wholesaler and responsible for the northern Virginia and Washington, D.C., markets.
