Nominations are open for the 2013 Lillywhite Award, the Employee Benefit Research Institute announced Tuesday.
The award acknowledges contributions by investment management and employee benefits professionals who have had distinguished careers and whose service enhances Americans' economic security, according to a news release.
The award is named after Ray Lillywhite, “a pioneer in the pension field who for decades guided state employee pension plans, and who helped found numerous professional organizations and educational programs,” the release said.
Mr. Lillywhite retired from Alliance Capital in 1992 after 55 years in the pension and investment field.
