The board of the National Association of Independent Life Brokerage Agencies has picked Jack Chiasson to become the group’s executive director.

Chiasson is taking over day-to-day management of NAILBA, Fairfax, Va., from Joseph Normandy, who left the organization in March.

Chiasson has been the director of conventions and events at NAILBA. He previously spent many years working for charities and trade groups, including the National Association of Broadcasters, Washington, and the Public Risk Management Association, Alexandria, Va.

“NAILBA is committed to supporting, improving, and protecting the wholesale life brokerage industry, ultimately helping our members grow their agencies,” Chiasson says in a statement about his new position. “I look forward to working with the NAILBA team of volunteer leadership and staff to continue the advancement of the organization’s strategic goals.”
