The American Society of Pension Professionals & Actuaries (ASPPA) announced Thursday that Ronald Triche will join ASPPA as assistant general counsel and director of government affairs.
Triche, who will start his new post on April 22, comes to ASPPA from Trucker Huss, where he served as retirement plan benefits attorney for 12 years, practicing in the areas of ERISA and qualified plans. Prior to that, Triche practiced in New Orleans.
In his new role, Triche will manage the ASPPA Government Affairs Committee and develop regulatory comments through a committee process, draft summaries of agency guidance and present ASPPA’s position to agencies such as the DOL, IRS, PBGC, SEC and on Capitol Hill. Triche will also serve as in-house assistant general counsel to ASPPA.
“We are happy to have an individual with Triche’s expertise and knowledge of ERISA joining ASPPA. His previous work as a volunteer with ASPPA and the Western Pension & Benefits Council demonstrates his commitment to our mission of working to protect America’s retirement,” said Craig Hoffman, ASPPA general counsel and director of regulatory affairs, in a statement.
