NTSA Names Glassey as New Executive Director

The National Tax-deferred Savings Association (NTSA) has named Nathan Glassey as its Executive Director, effective immediately.

Glassey joins the NTSA with nearly two decades of experience in the non-profit sector at National Benefit Services, LLC, most recently as Vice President, Non-ERISA Retirement Services. He currently serves on the NTSA Leadership Council. 

“Nate’s extensive experience and his previous contributions as a member of NTSA’s Leadership Council will allow him to hit the ground running,” noted Brian H. Graff, Esq., APM, ARA Chief Executive Officer. “The past two years have been extraordinarily challenging for workers and employers in the non-profit sector, and we look forward to Nate’s leadership in the months ahead.” 

“I’ve dedicated my career to the support and enhancement of retirement security for non-ERISA plans, and have been a passionate member and volunteer of NTSA for many years,” said Glassey. “I am committed to the mission of the organization, excited about the future, and honored to have an opportunity to serve in a leadership role here.”  

Glassey takes over the helm from Mark Luckinbill, who, after leading the organization through the second year of the COVID pandemic, has decided to pursue new challenges within the industry. In addition to continued advocacy on behalf of 403(b) and 457 plan advisors, Luckinbill’s tenure saw continued growth of NTSA, expanding and enhancing its NTSA Certified Retirement Education Specialist (CRES) certificate, and returning to a live and highly successful national conference event in February.  

“Working at the American Retirement Association, supporting an industry dedicated to helping Americans retire successfully, has been a terrific experience,” said Luckinbill. “The ARA staff and all the NTSA volunteers are a passionate group of professionals. I look forward to continuing to work amongst them as I move on to the next phase of my career.” 

“We very much appreciate Mark’s leadership and contributions during a difficult period,” said Graff. We wish him much success in his new venture.”
