OneAmerica Adds Professionals to Serve U.S. Institutional Clients

Issued by: OneAmerica

Date: Aug. 20, 2019

Retirement industry veterans add to deep bench of relationship managers

Indianapolis (August 20, 2019) -- OneAmericaŽ has made two significant additions to its retirement relationship management team, re-hiring veteran Edward (Ed) Gaffney to relationship director, based in Kansas City, with Barclay Fuss now serving as a relationship director based in Atlanta.

Gaffney comes to OneAmerica from CUNA Mutual Group and Fuss comes from MassMutual Financial Group. Both started with OneAmerica in July.

"We are very pleased with the addition of both Ed and Barclay to our team," said Alan R. Blaskowski, relationship management leader, OneAmerica retirement services. "They bring decades of exemplary, proven experience that focuses on client service and thought leadership while being in lockstep with our mission to work on behalf of retirement plan advisors."

Prior to his nearly 7-year stint with CUNA Mutual Group (where, during part of his tenure at CUNA he was responsible for clients in seven states) Gaffney was employed as a client relationship manager with Transamerica Retirement Services and before that Great-West Retirement Services. Gaffney served as a client relationship manager with OneAmerica from 2004 to 2008.  He is a 2001 graduate of Baker University.

"Throughout my career in financial services I've been fortunate to work for many great firms and help plan participants prepare for retirement," said Gaffney.  "In addition, I've successfully collaborated with plan sponsors and retirement plan advisors to help develop and maintain competitive company sponsored retirement plans."

Gaffney added, "My goal has always been to bring my passion for helping others, participants, sponsors and advisors to achieve their goals.  I am very excited to be rejoining the OneAmerica family and I firmly believe that my experience and passion, coupled with the dedication and support of an industry leader like OneAmerica will allow us to help more individuals be better prepared for retirement, make plan sponsors lives easier and build strong long-lasting relationships with our advisors."   

His territory includes Kansas, Nebraska and western Missouri.

Gaffney reports to Amy Rice while Fuss reports to Lori Williams with all being under the auspices of Blaskowski.

Fuss previously spent 7 years as a relationship manager for MassMutual in greater Atlanta, and before that was employed as a relationship manager with The Hartford. She began her career in 1999. Fuss is a 1992 graduate of Miami (Ohio) University.

"My background in working with retirement plan advisors and clients gives me a deeper understanding of the unique retirement plan needs and complex plan design issues that are common," Fuss said. "I am excited to continue growing the OneAmerica brand as a premier retirement plan service provider."

Her territory includes Georgia and her native state of West Virginia.
