Press Release

TRA Adds Sam Spearman as Regional Sales Consultant

Issued by TRA [The Retirement Advantage]

Oct. 26, 2020

Spearman succeeds the retiring Jay Scholz in Texas

APPLETON, WI (October 26, 2020) – The Retirement Advantage, Inc. (TRA), an independently owned, industry-leading national retirement services company, announced the hiring of Sam Spearman as their most recent Regional Sales Consultant, covering a territory that includes both Texas and Louisiana.  Spearman will report to Darin Erdmann, TRA’s National Sales Manager.

Spearman will be responsible for partnering with financial advisors and retirement wholesalers in designing and implementing optimal retirement plans for businesses of all sizes.

“Throughout his professional career, Sam has been a dynamic results-driven leader. He has consistently demonstrated his expertise while serving in a variety of roles. He will be a well-rounded addition to the team,” states Erdmann. “Sam has a solid understanding and depth of experience in this marketplace and we are proud to welcome him aboard. We look forward to his valuable insights and contributions.”

Spearman will be taking over for Jay Scholz who retired last month. Scholz has had a remarkable career spanning over 30 years in the retirement plan industry. While at TRA, Scholz focused on providing consulting to financial advisors and plan sponsors throughout Texas. Prior to joining TRA, Scholz founded Scholz and Friends in San Antonio, Texas. Jay is highly respected among his peers in the industry and will be missed.

 “I am excited to build on the relationships Jay had with advisors and their clients across Texas and I have been blown away by the resources that TRA has dedicated to support that effort,” says Spearman. “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.”

Spearman joins TRA from My Benefits & First Party Administrator, a TPA where he operated as a Retirement Plan Sales & Consulting Specialist. Previously, Spearman served as a Senior Logistics Manager in the United States Air Force, last stationed in southern Oklahoma. Spearman acquired his Bachelor of Science in Biochemistry from The University of Texas in Austin, TX and holds both a QKA designation from ASPPA as well as his Texas Life and Health License.
