NEW YORK, May 8, 2017 — Ken Raskin, a New York-based partner and chair of King & Spalding’s Employee Benefits & Executive Compensation practice, has been named chair of the board of directors of the Plan Sponsor Council of America (PSCA).
“Ken brings excellent experience to his role as board chair,” said Jack Towarnicky, PSCA executive director. “He has been a member of our board for three years and has spent more than 30 years working as an advocate for employers sponsoring employee benefit and executive compensation programs. We look forward to his leadership.”
Ken counsels clients in the creation, structure and communication of tax-qualified retirement plans and welfare benefit plans, assisting clients in maintaining IRS and ERISA compliance and in negotiating the resolution of qualification problems under the IRS’s and Department of Labor’s compliance resolution programs. Ken also serves on King & Spalding’s Retirement Plans Committee.
“I look forward to helping PSCA navigate potential challenges to participant-directed retirement plans and retirement savers as the new Administration implements its agenda,” Ken said.
The PSCA is a non-profit trade association supporting employer-sponsored retirement plans. PSCA assists more than six million plan participants and provides its members with programs and services to help them better manage their company’s retirement plans. Last week, the PSCA also presented Ken with an annual volunteer service award, in recognition for his leadership and contributions to the organization.
