SAN DIEGO, CA, February 19, 2024 – PenChecks, Inc., parent company of PenChecks Trust®, a recognized leader in outsourced benefits distribution solutions, has taken another step forward with the hiring of Wes Schevers as the company’s Vice President, Advisor Solutions. His primary responsibility involves introducing PenChecks’ new IRA technology solution – NextLevel IRA – to advisors, recordkeepers and TPAs throughout the U.S.

NextLevel IRA technology provides a seamless managed account Rollover IRA process for plan participants and a mechanism for advisors to help create more favorable retirement outcomes.

His unique understanding of the specific needs of these two stakeholder groups is highly valuable in helping PenChecks create meaningful end-to-end solutions.

Prior to joining PenChecks Wes served as Director of Sales for LeafHouse Financial, where he led the sales efforts behind the company’s institutional fiduciary services, technology solutions, and managed accounts. His experience representing the company’s account solution for 401k plans provided the knowledge and expertise to establish a solid foundation for representing PenChecks’ new IRA account solution.

A resident of Georgetown, Texas, Schevers holds Bachelor and Master of Business Administration degrees from West Texas A&M University.
