The 2022 MDRT Executive Committee ushers in an integrated approach to supporting the financial services profession, as Randy Scritchfield, CFP, LUTCF, takes his place as 96th president and Carol Kheng, ChFC, joins as secretary. The Executive Committee will empower financial services professionals to redefine the limits of success, equipping them to rise, excel and lead throughout the full cycle of their careers.
Scritchfield, a 37-year member, succeeds 23-year member Ian Green, who will become the immediate past president. Peggy Tsai, RFP, CCFP, a 20-year member, and Gregory Gagne, ChFC, a 22-year member, will move into their new roles as first and second vice presidents while Carol Kheng, ChFC, a 23-year member, will serve as secretary.
The 2022 Executive Committee remains committed to providing support and delivering value for members as the impact of the pandemic continues. The MDRT Productivity Action Plan will be extended in 2022, establishing updated membership requirements enabling members to focus on leading clients to continued success. In addition, MDRT will provide added value to the global membership with the launch of the MDRT Productivity Action Plan Special Content, delivering MDRT’s high-caliber content exclusively to members via multiple platforms and formats.
In North America, the Executive Committee will also support the newly formed North America Channel Relations Team, charged with expanding MDRT’s footprint in North America. This effort focuses on connecting companies and individuals with MDRT’s wide-ranging support of the profession through the Family of Brands—three MDRT-driven associations, tailored to help members reach new heights at all stages of their career. In addition to the inspiration, learning and achievement that are the hallmark of MDRT, the MDRT Academy aids advisors seeking the boost they need to reach MDRT-levels of production. MDRT’s newest association, MDRT Global Services, aims to enhance not only its members’ careers, but the entire profession, through immersive leadership development for home and field office leaders.
“As we look forward to the next year, MDRT is committed to ensuring our members remain well supported—to not only help them navigate the ongoing impact of the pandemic, but help their clients and practice come out on top,” Scritchfield said. “With the Family of Brands offering unique value, tailored to each phase of an advisor’s career, we’re excited to see members put these resources into practice, to reach new levels of peak performance, enhance their career and deliver the highest quality service to their clients.”
