Boston, Massachusetts – January 11, 2018 – Marsh & McLennan Agency is pleased to congratulate two of their colleagues for being named to NAPA’s Top U-40 List.  Andrew Ziergiebel (right), Consultant, and Andrew Bayliss(left), Vice President, have been included on the National Association of Plan Advisors list of top 75 plan advisors under the age of 40.

This list is based on applications received from nominees designated by NAPA Broker-Dealer/RIA Firm Partners.  Applications are vetted by a blue ribbon panel of senior advisor industry experts based on a combination of quantitative and qualitative data submitted by the nominees, as well as a broker-check review, and voted on by thousands in the retirement plan industry. These “Young Guns” are widely seen as the future leaders of the retirement plan advisor industry.

This year there were more than 500 nominations, a 10% increase from a year ago.  While each year’s nominations contain an inspiring pool of potential candidates, due to both the size and quantity of qualifying advisors, NAPA has again acknowledged only 75 top young retirement plan advisors.

“Andrew Bayliss and Andy Ziergiebel are industry thought leaders and an integral part of our Retirement Team.  They are knowledgeable, hardworking team members who lead by example,” said Andy Thorpe, Managing Consultant of New England’s Retirement Services team.  “We are proud of their accomplishments and look forward to them paving the way for our growing retirement team.”
