Securian Retirement Adds to Sales Staff

Anthony Bunnell and Ryan Tolmie have joined the Securian Retirement sales staff as vice presidents.

Bunnell is a divisional sales vice president and the newest addition to Securian’s institutional retirement plan group. He is tasked with building Securian’s relationships with advisers specializing in the mid- to large-sized plan markets and is based in the firm’s Texas region. Previously, Bunnell held positions with J.P. Morgan and Mercer. He has a bachelor’s degree from St. Michael’s College and an M.B.A. from Southern Methodist University.

Tolmie joins Securian as a regional sales vice president, taking on responsibility for relationship management and sales efforts among advisers in the small- and mid-sized qualified retirement plan markets. His regions of responsibility include New Jersey, Rhode Island, Connecticut and Massachusetts. Previously, Tolmie held retirement plan sales positions with ADP and Putnam Investments.

Vince Giordano, Securian’s national retirement plan sales vice president, says the new hires should allow the firm to continue its effort to expand adoption of its open architecture retirement platform.
