The Board of Directors for the National Association for Fixed Annuities, NAFA, announced yesterday that they are beginning a search for a new Executive Director. After careful consideration of the association’s long-term goals, which will focus on growth, expanded advocacy and engagement on behalf of fixed annuities and the annuity industry, it was determined that it was time to seek a new Executive Director.

“We thank Mr. Anderson for his leadership. We are grateful for his guidance through the lawsuit against the Department of Labor and other areas of issue NAFA faced over the last three years,” said Dominic Cursio, chairman of NAFA’s Board of Directors.

Anderson has been a long-standing member of the association and stepped in three years ago as its Executive Director during a time of transition. Anderson will continue in his current role and be an integral part of the selection committee, continuing his support through the transition period.

NAFA is now actively pursuing a candidate who can execute the Board’s strategic vision for the organization, enhance NAFA’s membership experience, and advocate for the value of fixed annuities. Individuals interested in the Executive Director position can submit their resume and a cover letter via email to until April 15. A list of candidate requirements may be viewed here.

NAFA’s initial goal is to have a new Executive Director selected in time for an introduction to membership at the Annuity Leadership Forum and Hill Walk that will be held at the Grand Hyatt Washington in Washington, D.C. from June 13-15.

“Of course, we won’t rush the process to hit a date as we want to find the right candidate that can help NAFA meet its long-term objectives,” added Cursio.
