Bob Benish has resigned as executive director of the Plan Sponsor Council of America (PSCA), a non-profit trade association supporting employer-sponsored retirement plans, the organization said in a statement.
Tony Verheyen, a member of PSCA’s board of directors and the executive committee, has been named executive director.
“We recognize Bob for his five years of stewardship of PSCA,” Steve McCaffrey, chairman of PSCA’s board of directors, said in a statement. “His contributions have been appreciated and we wish him well.”
McCaffrey called the appointment of Verheyen the first of several steps PSCA is taking to build a new leadership team by and for its members. The association’s plans call for rejuvenated member outreach, member training programs, and expanded focus into topics outside defined contribution retirement plans, such as health savings accounts, and nonqualified deferred compensation plans.
