Securities America announced Tuesday that it had hired three regional directors to recruit what it said was a “continuously growing pipeline of prospective advisors” in those regions.
Marc Beekman, 33, is the new regional director for greater New England, including Washington, D.C.; Steve Dripchak, 52, a 30-year industry veteran, is a senior regional director focused on the Northeast, including New York and New Jersey; and Troy Reeder, 38, who has served in various wholesaler roles, will serve as the regional director for the Northwest, stationed in Denver.
“We are pleased to welcome three new recruiters with extensive securities industry experience to the Securities America team,” said John Behn, Securities America national director of branch office development. “All three are local to their sales territory, providing just-in-time personal access to prospective advisors, which will be key to the ongoing growth of the company.”
Beekman began his career as a financial advisor before becoming a wholesaler with Jackson National Life and then Transamerica. Most recently, he was a personal investment officer with BBVA Compass Bancshares.
Dripchak has held various senior sales and relationship positions including the role of vice president of relationship management at National Financial Services. Most recently, he was a vice president at COR Clearing.
