Today, we welcome Tony Boquet, vice president of the American College. Our wide-ranging interview begins with a discussion of the Penn Mutual Center for Veteran Affairs. The Center is a scholarship-based program, which helps veterans separating from service to get the education they need to build careers in the financial services industry.

We also discuss new programs and designations on both the life and the benefits side of the business, including some initiatives that are specially targeted to new areas of concentration. We also learn how the college is also keeping up with the times with new state-of-the-art audio and video production facilities, new ways to access content and more.

In an ever-more complex marketplace, education may be more important than ever. For more than 87 years, The American College has provided a variety of educational tracks geared to benefits and financial services professionals. As a former producer himself, Tony’s perspective and enthusiasm for the forward direction of the college makes for a great and engaging interview.
