New Interviews and Essays to be Published Here Beginning Monday; Leaders & Innovators Interview Series Expands in Research Magazine

When I came up with the idea for a blog based, in part, on interviews with executive leaders in financial services I couldn’t have known how popular the one-of-a-kind conversations would become. Nor could I have foreseen that Research Magazine, under the byline David Macchia Interviews, would publish one of my interviews each month in both its print and online editions. To my delight this has significantly expanded readership. Research kicked-off with my interview with LPL’s Mark Casady in its March issue. DWS Scudder’s Philipp Hensler appears in the April issue.

Some of you may have noticed that it’s been a while since I’ve published any new items here. But after taking a month-long sabbatical I’m charged-up with ideas. Look for more essays and interviews beginning Monday, March 31.

If you’ve enjoyed my writings on the annuity business you may find the next interview to be especially interesting. Somewhat to my surprise, Allianz Life’s Tom Burns agreed to speak with me. After stepping into the lion’s den, Burns revealed much during our conversation. Look for it on Monday.
