TRA Hires Tiffany Hanks as Regional Sales Consultant

Hanks’s succession will be for Nina Trott in the Mid-Atlantic Region


The Retirement Advantage, Inc. (TRA), an industry-leading employee benefits consulting and technology firm, is pleased to announce the hiring of Tiffany Hanks as their latest Regional Sales Consultant, providing service to our Mid-Atlantic territory of DC, DE, MD, VA & WV. Hanks will report to Craig Mazzini, National Sales Manager of TRA.

Hanks joins TRA with more than 28 years of experience in the financial and insurance industry, specializing in retirement plans. Tiffany began her career working in a family-owned ERISA consulting firm, which she led for several years. After relocating from Salt Lake City to the Washington, D.C. area, she worked as an administrator for a local TPA firm. She was then appointed by ING (now VOYA) to the newly-created role as TPA Regional Manager. From there, Tiffany progressed to the role of National Practice Leader for the TPA channel for MassMutual. Hanks will be tasked with partnering financial advisors and wholesalers to design and implement optimal retirement plans for privately-held businesses with 1-1,000 employees.

“Throughout her career, Tiffany has been a results-driven leader. She has demonstrated her expertise, serving in various roles within the retirement plan industry, which makes her a well-rounded addition to the team,” states Mazzini. “Tiffany has a unique understanding and depth of experience in this marketplace and we are proud to welcome her to our team and look forward to her valuable insights and contributions.”

“TRA is a company that clearly is dedicated to doing whatever it takes for their clients, and believes in the power of innovation to stay on the absolute leading edge of the industry, says Hanks. “There's no question that these factors have helped the company achieve the position that it enjoys today. I am looking forward to devoting my efforts to TRA’s continued success.”

Hanks will be taking over for Nina Trott who is retiring at the end of July. Trott has had a remarkable career spanning 35 plus years in the retirement plan industry. While at TRA, Trott focused on providing consulting to financial advisors and plan sponsors throughout the Mid-Atlantic. Prior to joining TRA, Trott founded Capital Pension Services, Inc. (CPSI) in Woodbridge, VA. Trott is highly respected among her peers in the industry and will be missed.
