Jason Schuller of Minneapolis was appointed senior vice president with responsibility for the new Wealth Management Services unit at Securian Trust Company, NA.

Schuller joined Securian Trust Company in 2006 as wealth management counsel. Before that, he was a partner in a wealth advisory group at Piper Jaffray with a focus on financial and estate planning. He then cofounded the law firm Erickson and Schuller, LLC which specialized in trusts, estates and business law. Schuller’s appointment coincides with a reorganization at Securian Trust Company that folds the wealth management counsel and trust administration functions into the Wealth Management Services unit.

In an announcement, Securian Trust Company President Sarah Monke said creating the new unit strengthens the company’s presence in the Twin Cities and will enhance its relationships with advisors in the Securian Financial Network, a nationwide network of financial advisors. Schuller is a native of Rochester, Minn. He received his bachelor’s degree from the University of St. Thomas and his law degree from Hamline University School of Law, both in St. Paul, Minn.
