Industry Vet, Jeff Kayajanian, Joins GRP Management TeamSubmitted by GRP Advisor Alliance on July 31st, 2018
Much like their network of retirement-focused advisors, the GRP Advisor Alliance home office continues to expand. Jeff Kayajanian, an industry veteran with over 30 years of experience, has joined the senior management team and will be responsible for the sales and management of their collective investment trusts (CITs). Jim Owen, Managing Partner at the Carlsbad, CA-based shop confirmed the news, citing his overwhelming experience in the space and the need for someone to directly oversee their newest line of business as reasons for the hire. “Since the launch back in Q4 of last year we’ve experienced strong demand for these products.” Owen explained. “We wanted to make sure that we’re covering all the bases as we continue to roll out exclusive, low-cost investment vehicles. I can’t think of a better fit than Jeff. We’re very excited to have him, and for the impact it will have on our advisor’s businesses.”
Founder & CEO Bill Chetney reinforced Owen’s sentiment. “We’ve known Jeff a long time, going back over 25 years. He fits our culture perfectly and will bring a level of experience that will have an immediate impact. We’re extremely glad to have him.”
Jeff was the former national sales manager with State Street Research and former Western sales manager with Hartford Retirement Plans Group prior to joining GRP.
