Securian Financial is building a team of six regional vice presidents to manage its entry into the bank distribution channel for individual annuities.
Chris Owens is the St. Paul, Minnesota-based company’s national sales vice president for retail life and annuities.
The company has already hired Kate McLees Hannon and Karl Krause to be regional sales vice presidents for the bank channel, and it says it plans to hire four more regional vice presidents for the bank channel by the end of the year.
