PSCA Honors Annette Grabow with Lifetime Achievement Award

Issued by PSCA [Plan Sponsor Council of America]

May 5, 2023

This prestigious award is given annually to individuals for their noteworthy contributions to the defined contribution industry.

Arlington, VA  – Annette Grabow, CEBS, CPSP™, was awarded the Plan Sponsor Council of America’s 2023 Lifetime Achievement Award at its National Conference on May 4, 2023, in Orlando, FL. Winners of PSCA’s Lifetime Achievement Award are nominated by PSCA members and then voted on by the PSCA leadership committee.

Ms. Grabow is the Retirement Plan Manager for Sonepar USA. She received separate nominations from three PSCA members who have worked with her throughout the years. As Tony Verheyen, former PSCA Executive Director shared, “In the past 30 years, Annette has done more than anyone associated with defined contribution plans to showcase plan sponsor commitment to helping employees become retirement ready through leading-edge and time-tested workplace education and communication strategies.” This commitment to education and communication has garnered Ms. Grabow approximately 70 industry awards including multiple PSCA Signature Awards, P&I Eddy awards and Plan Sponsor Magazine’s Plan Sponsor of the Year Award, among others.

“Annette deserves the Lifetime Achievement Award for her multiple decades serving as a plan sponsor and a valuable partner for plan advisors and the greater vendor community. I greatly stand behind her love for financial education and the best-in-class plans she has led throughout the years,” noted Ira Finn, PHR, SHRM-CP, CPSP™, Vice President, Compensation and Benefits, Ryan Specialty, and a current member of PSCA’s Leadership Council.

Ms. Grabow has spoken at numerous events and webcasts to share her expertise on plan governance and other topics. She provided expert guidance around the fee disclosure and auto participation rules when they came out many years ago. She has also provided expert testimony before the ERISA Advisory Council.

“Annette’s belief in the importance of defined contribution plans has provided her participants a best-in-class experience for their financial future and has demonstrated to the industry a best practice in how to be a plan sponsor,” said Will Hansen, PSCA’s Executive Director.
