Press Release

IRI President and CEO Announces Retirement

Issued by Insured Retirement Institute [IRI]

Mar. 28, 2018

Search Committee Formed for Recruitment

WASHINGTON, D.C. – The Insured Retirement Institute (IRI) issued the following statement from IRI President and CEO Cathy Weatherford today.

"2018 will be my tenth year at IRI and I am looking forward to setting IRI on the track for another twenty five years of being the first-call association for the retirement income industry. Over the course of my career, my objective has always been to implement forward-thinking policies that benefit the constituents, consumers, employees, members, men, and women whom I have served. My thanks and appreciation goes to the IRI Board of Directors, the IRI membership, the staff, and to my family for the support they have provided over the past nine years. Through their support and encouragement, we have achieved many great things."

As part of the two-year succession plan, Cathy Weatherford will retire effective December 31, 2018.

The IRI Board of Directors is conducting a search to recruit her replacement. The accelerating pace of change in the retirement income landscape, as well as IRI's outstanding track record of the last decade under Cathy's leadership, require the association to seek an extraordinary individual for its leadership. The Insured Retirement Institute has proven itself as a first-call association through its dedicated efforts on behalf of America's retirement savers through its leadership of the National Retirement Planning Coalition, the fight against the fiduciary rule, and its numerous advocacy efforts on Capitol Hill.

The Search Committee, in close cooperation with the Board's Executive Committee, will be focusing their efforts on the most senior professionals in national leadership roles in both legislative branches and regulatory agencies, as well as "C Suite" executives (and alumni) at financial services firms who have strong thought leadership and advocacy track records.

The job description, search strategy and the list of Search Committee members is available here. The Search Committee will be supported by George Wilbanks, of financial services recruiting firm Wilbanks Partners.

The Search Committee intends to identify potential prospects and interview candidates through the spring, reach a conclusion on finalists by mid-year, and have the successful candidate employed this fall to work on a leadership transition with Cathy Weatherford.
