Join us on May 19 for the presentation of IRI’s Industry Champion of Retirement Security Award.
What is it?
IRI created the Champions of Retirement Security Award in 2013 to recognize policymakers who have contributed significantly to advancing ideas and policies that enhance retirement security for America’s workers and retirees. IRI broadened this program in 2019 to acknowledge currently serving insured retirement industry leaders who make valuable contributions toward expanding retirement security; influence, develop, and improve the industry’s ability to serve clients, employees, and communities; and uphold rigorous professional and ethical standards.
This designation is separate from IRI’s Hall of Fame Award, which recognizes retired industry executives.
How are winners chosen?
The IRI Executive Committee recommends and selects candidates from among currently serving insured retirement industry executives for IRI’s Industry Champion of Retirement Security award.
Award recipients are leaders with vision and passion who go above and beyond to advance not only their company’s business but to influence the industry to achieve purposeful outcomes. Recipients seek and accept industry leadership roles at IRI and other well-regarded industry organizations. They actively participate and influence outcomes to advance the industry in accordance with IRI strategic pillars in advocacy, operations and technology, diversity, equity, and inclusion, member engagement, and other critical areas. Finally, these leaders are committed to IRI’s mission and vision to advance policies to help America’s workers and retirees achieve a dignified retirement, are highly respected among their peers, and exemplify the insured retirement industry’s ideals and high ethical and professional standards.
