Eight Pensionmark Advisors Named to NAPA's 2020 Top Women Advisors List


Contact: Renata Coimbra - (805) 456-7098 -

Pensionmark is proud to announce eight advisors across our network have been named to the 2020 NAPA Top Women Advisors List across all 3 categories - Captains: Kathy Branconier, Brea Dantin, Shelly Horwitz, Shannon Main, Debbie Matustik; All-Stars: Kristen Deevy, Michele Lantz; and Rising Stars: Veronica Taylor.

This is the sixth year the National Association of Plan Advisors, a branch of the American Retirement Association, has put out a list of women advisors who are making significant contributions to a male-dominated profession.

The list includes 3 categories of advisors, all chosen based on qualitative and quantitative responses related to their retirement plan practice and their experience throughout their career in the industry. The three categories include:

  • Captains: All-stars who happen to be principals, owners, or team captains of their organizations.
  • All-Stars: Top producers who have their own practice.
  • Rising Stars: Top producers who have less than five years of experience with retirement plans as a Financial Advisor (some have been working with plans longer, but not as a plan advisor).


Pensionmark is very proud of the advisors recognized on this list. All eight women are pioneers in the retirement plan space and we are grateful for the contributions they've made both in our industry and within our firm.
