October 11, 2012 (PLANSPONSOR.com) – New York Life Retirement Plan Services has expanded its industry practice service model, with the hiring of seven relationship managers.

Stephen Jackson, formerly with AllianceBernstein, and J. Todd Kimmell, previously at Mercer, both joined New York Life in August. Other new hires include Mark Regan, from Fidelity, Antoinette Martinez and Brian Clark, who both join from Prudential in early 2012 and late 2011.  

Jackson, Regan and Clark are exclusively dedicated to clients in the company’s largest industry practice—manufacturing, materials, distribution and retail. Kimmell also serves plan sponsors in this industry, in addition to a book of Taft-Hartley clients. Martinez joins the technology and communications practice. These new hires round out a team of now 25 relationship managers, headed by Joan Driscoll, New York Life Retirement Plan Services’ managing director of client strategy. The manufacturing, materials, distribution and retail practice is overseen by practice lead Scott Francolini, while Martinez reports to Michelle Morey, head of the technology and communications practice.
