Nevin E. Adams, retirement-sector veteran and most recently global editor-in-chief of PLANSPONSOR magazine and its web counterpart, will join the nonpartisan, non-advocacy Employee Benefit Research Institute as director of Education and External Relations and co-director of EBRI’s Center for Research on Retirement Income with EBRI Research Director Jack VanDerhei.  

“Nevin’s in-depth knowledge of ERISA, plan services, plan design, and much more will bring immense benefit to the ongoing work of EBRI and to its many constituencies in providing ‘just the facts,’” said Dallas Salisbury, EBRI president and CEO.  

Adams has extensive experience in the retirement industry, having served in a series of senior management positions in both the defined benefit and defined contribution plan fields at Wachovia Bank and Northern Trust Corporation.  

“There is no greater challenge facing American retirees than the attainment of sufficient income in retirement,” Adams noted. “As plan sponsors, product providers, and policymakers strive to help build workable solutions, they need data and analysis that is accurate, unbiased, and timely. People who care about getting it right have long turned to EBRI as the nation’s premier source of benefits research, and I’m honored to be able to be part of that tradition.”  

Adams has received numerous awards, including twice winning recognition for outstanding coverage of pension and retirement issues by the National Association of Government Defined Contribution Administrators, and has been named one of the 401(k) Industry’s Most Influential in each of the past five years by readers of the 401kWire. He holds B.S. and J.D. degrees from DePaul University.
