Rochester, NY, October 20, 2021 – Beltz Ianni & Associates’ Michelle Cannan has been named one of NAPA’s 2021 Top Women Advisor “Captains”.

Now in its seventh year, the Top Women Advisors accolade was launched in 2015 to acknowledge the contributions of a growing number of women who are making significant contributions to the retirement industry, as well as bringing excellence to the profession.

“We are pleased and proud to be able to once again acknowledge the fine and important work that these individuals have done to help provide a better retirement for their clients, employers and individual retirement savers alike,” said Nevin E. Adams, Chief Communications Officer of the American Retirement Association, and Editor-in-Chief of NAPA-Net.  

Nearly 600 nominations were provided by NAPA’s extensive list of broker-dealer and RIA Firm Partners.  Nominees were, in turn asked to respond to a series of quantitative and qualitative questions regarding their experience, education, team structure, accomplishments, and impact.  Those responses were anonymized and then reviewed by a blue-ribbon panel of industry experts who, over the course of several weeks, selected the individuals honored in three separate categories:

All-Stars: Top producers who have their own practice.

Captains: All-stars who happen to be principals, owners or team captains of their organizations.

Rising Stars: Top producers who have less than five years of experience with retirement plans as a financial advisor (some have been working with retirement plans longer, but not as a financial advisor).
