Lincoln Financial Distributors (LFD), the wholesale distribution business of Lincoln Financial Group, has expanded its retirement plan services intermediary sales force by four people, bringing the team to 34.
The four new specialists are: Gina Balducci, covering the western San Francisco Bay Area and northwest California; Ashlee Vingle, responsible for San Diego; Timothy Yarbrough, focused on southwest Texas; and Patricia Norton, helping clients throughout southeast Florida.
As part of their responsibilities, Balducci, Vingle, Yarbrough and Norton will provide Lincoln’s retirement plan solutions to financial representatives, supporting advisors as they drive better retirement outcomes for their clients through Lincoln’s wealth protection expertise and broad portfolio of asset-protecting solutions.
“We will continue expanding our sales force to provide better service and increase awareness of our retirement plan services offerings,” says John Kennedy, head of LFD’s retirement solutions distribution. “Lincoln was built on delivering accumulation, asset protection and income distribution strategies, and our retirement plan services portfolio is an impressive part of that business. By expanding our team, advisors will experience an increased level of support, providing access to the right tools and solutions as they develop goal-based retirement plan programs for their clients.”
