Indianapolis (January 23, 2012) – The retirement services division of American United Life Insurance Company® (AUL), a OneAmerica company, announced today the opening of its new regional sales office in the Seattle area. Veteran regional sales director Mike Grimme has moved from OneAmerica’s home city of Indianapolis to the Pacific Northwest to establish the new office. Grimme has been regional sales director in the Indianapolis market for the last seven years and has been with AUL for a total of 20 years.
Washington, Oregon and Alaska have previously been serviced out of OneAmerica’s San Francisco regional sales office.
“Some of our biggest and most recognizable clients are in the Pacific Northwest, so our footprint is firmly established in that region,” said Bill Yoerger, president of retirement business for the OneAmerica companies. “By establishing a physical office under Mike’s leadership, we can build upon our existing presence, grow in a more substantial way and be closer to our existing and new clients.”
The companies of OneAmerica have experienced remarkable growth in retirement business, despite the recent financial downturn. The organization has been successful in moving into the mid-to-large plan market by combining financial strength, enhanced consulting services and financial support tools with a service commitment to plan sponsors that includes personal attention and an
award-winning custom communications program that helps foster employee engagement.
OneAmerica set sales records in 2009 and 2010 for 401(k) sales, employer-sponsored not-for-profit sales, total assets and plan participants, and expects to set new records in all categories again once 2011’s final sales figures are totaled.
"I'm looking forward to introducing the OneAmerica companies to even more of the Pacific Northwest's retirement plan community,” said Grimme. “Our unique combination of high service and high customization allows us to stand out in the employer retirement plan marketplace."
The new office is located at 10900 NE 4th Street, Suite 2300 in Bellevue. The phone number is 425-440-2504.
