Pacer Financial adds industry veteran to lead wholesale efforts


Pacer Financial, the fund distributor for Pacer ETFs, has appointed Phil Eichinger as a senior vice president.

Eichinger will head the firm’s wholesaling efforts across various product lines, including ETFs, annuities, and life insurance.
For Eichinger, the move brings him back to where his career started – working alongside Pacer Financial president Joe Thomson and Pacer ETF Distributors president Sean O’Hara, both of whom were Eichinger’s colleagues at PLANCO.
“My career has come full circle,” says Eichinger, “and I couldn’t be more excited about it. Working with Joe and Sean again is an honour. They are on an impressive growth trajectory and I’m thrilled to work with them as they build on that success.”
Eichinger has over 28 years of experience in financial services distribution and sales. Most recently, Eichinger lead distribution at RS Investments, where his efforts grew the firm’s assets under management from USD9 billion to USD27 billion in less than five years. Prior to that, Eichinger worked as national sales manager of The Hartford Mutual Funds.
“Phil has a proven track record of growing assets under management and delivering a superior client experience,” says Thomson. “Since we launched Pacer ETFs less than two years ago, Sean and the sales team have raised almost USD1 billion in assets under management. As we continue on this impressive growth path, we felt that now is the perfect time to add another seasoned leader. I don’t think we could have found a better fit for that role than Phil to lead our wholesaling efforts.”
