Randy G. DeFrehnWith nearly 40 years of experience serving multiemployer plans, their participants and sponsoring organizations, Randy G. DeFrehn has served as an administrator of national pension, health and welfare benefit plans in the U.S. and Canada; an employee benefits consultant; a registered investment advisor; and since 2000, as their lead advocate and chief spokesman on matters of public policy.

Next month, DeFrehn, executive director of the National Coordinating Committee for Multiemployer Plans, will be a featured speaker at the National Electrical Contractors Association’s National Legislative Conference, the premiere event for electrical contractors to hear about the top issues affecting the industry and meet the leaders who are working to provide real solutions.

DeFrehn regularly testifies before committees of the U.S. House of Representatives, Senate, and administrative agencies with jurisdiction over multiemployer plans. He is often consulted by government officials, quoted in the mainstream and trade press in the U.S. and Europe and has provided commentary on the funded status of multiemployer defined benefit pension plans on CNBC’s “The Kudlow Report and on National Public Radio.

Under his leadership, in 2013 the NCCMP received the National Electrical Contractor Association’s Industry Partner Award for its work to preserve and protect multiemployer pension plans. Additionally, DeFrehn was personally recognized as a 2013 CORPaTH Champion and by Institutional Investor Magazine in both 2013 and 2014 as among the top 10 of their Pension 40, described as a listing of “the 40 most influential people in the battle to decide the future of U.S. pensions.”
