Press release:

Jack Towarnicky To Succeed Tony Verheyen as PSCA Executive Director

Issued by: PSCA [Plan Sponsor Council of America]

Date: May 2, 2017

Chicago (May 2, 2017) -- The Plan Sponsor Council of America (PSCA) today announced that John M. (Jack) Towarnicky will join the organization as Executive Director.  Tony Verheyen, who announced his intention to return to the private sector, will stay on during the transition.   

“Jack brings both experience at employee benefits trade associations and with plan sponsors,” said Stephen McCaffrey, PSCA Board Chairman. “After an extensive search, we are pleased to find a leader with deep experience who can continue the growth and success of our organization.”

Most recently, Towarnicky was a visiting Assistant Professor of Management at Duquesne University.  Prior to teaching, he served in a benefits compliance role at Willis, now Willis Towers Watson. Before Willis, he led the corporate benefits function at Nationwide Mutual Insurance Company.  Jack  also served in benefits leadership roles at several other Fortune 500 employers including Tenneco Oil E&P, Cooper Industries, and Marathon Oil.  He has served on boards of several benefits trade associations including the American Benefits Council, World at Work, the Corporate Board of the International Foundation of Employee Benefit Plans, and the Council on Employee Benefits.

“I’m proud to join PSCA as Executive Director,” said Towarnicky. “This unique role offers an  opportunity to combine my plan sponsor knowledge, trade association leadership, and public policy skills.  I look forward to working with the staff, the board, and member employers in continuing PSCA’s mission to advance the interests of America’s plan sponsors.”

“I couldn’t be more pleased that PSCA has found a successor who can continue to expand our work in Washington and across the country as a leading voice representing the plan sponsor community,” said Verheyen. “I am confident he will work well with our staff and board to provide value to our members.”

Verheyen expects to leave the organization on June 15.  Said McCaffrey, ‘Tony did an incredible job during his tenure. He successfully reorganized PSCA, expanded our outreach efforts, orchestrated our city events across the country, and focused us all on our mission to serve the Plan Sponsor community.  We owe him a debt of gratitude for his leadership and service to PSCA.”
