Alera Group Retirement Plan Services today welcomes Christian Mango, AIF®, AIFA® as Executive Vice President and national practice leader of its Retirement Plan Services division. Mango brings more than 25 years of financial industry and leadership experience to the role.
“Christian Mango is an important hire for our growing Retirement Plan Services division,” said Jim Blue, President, Alera Group. “Christian brings experience supporting plan sponsors with plan design, employee education, investment analysis, benchmarking, fiduciary plan governing and aligning retirement plans with broader corporate goals and objectives. He has also supported plan participants with educational programs to bridge gaps by more effectively engaging employees, leveraging data and analytics, and delivering more personalized services and solutions.”
In his most recent position, Mango was president of Financial Fitness for Life, an award-winning financial wellness and education firm. Prior to that, he served for eight years as a Senior Defined Contribution Consultant with BlackRock. He has also served in senior sales roles for Pioneer Investments, Touchstone Investments and Natixis Global Associates.
Said Mango, “As a relatively new entrant in an industry that’s traditionally lagged in innovation, we have an opportunity to impress clients with the benefits of working with a truly collaborative, multi-disciplinary provider. Collaborative integration across Alera Group divisions, including Employee Benefits, Property and Casualty Insurance and Wealth Services, means more personalized services and creative problem-solving. That’s true for both plan sponsors and individual plan participants.“
Mango’s appointment as national practice leader is part of Alera Group’s strategic efforts to grow its Retirement Plan Services division. The firm recently acquired Phoenix-based DFG 401(k) Advisors and expects to make additional acquisitions in the coming months. Across all divisions, Alera Group has expanded to more than 150 offices since its formation in 2017.
