New Regional Manager Joins OneAmerica

OneAmerica has hired Kara Knott as its regional sales director for the central region. Prior to joining the team, she worked as a retirement services wholesaler for major accounts with ADP.

Knott will oversee a four-state service territory, including cities throughout Iowa, Nebraska, Kansas, and western Missouri. She is tasked with educating plan sponsors and plan advisers about how they can help people progress toward financial wellness and comfortable retirements.

“Kara is a tremendous addition to the OneAmerica team,” says Pete Schroedle, vice president of retirement services. “She knows the industry, understands the needs of financial advisers, plan sponsors and participants, and her approach to developing relationships mirrors our philosophy of ‘high-touch’ service. Kara’s knowledge of the region, capabilities in sales and connecting with people, will benefit her and us in this role.”

Knott is a graduate of the University of Iowa.
