Former Prudential director to head up distribution team as membership grows
LOUISVILLE, KY, Jan. 31, 2023 — DPL Financial Partners, the leading insurance platform for registered investment advisors, announced today the appointment of Michael Titus as senior vice president, distribution. Titus will oversee DPL’s team of advisor-facing insurance consultants.
“As DPL’s reach expands to more than 3,500 RIA firms with access to our platform, Mike’s extensive experience leading and optimizing distribution teams to serve advisor needs for insurance solutions will be invaluable,” said Tom Smith, DPL’s chief growth officer. “His previous work in carrier and wirehouse distribution channels makes him a natural fit to lead our team and we’re excited to have him join us.”
Prior to joining DPL, Titus was director of internal sales at Prudential Financial and drove internal sales operations. Previous roles at Prudential included managing the wirehouse channel and, before that, serving as a senior sales consultant. Before entering insurance distribution, Titus was an attorney at Harris and Harris and a law clerk in the Montgomery County Courts in Pennsylvania.
“It was an easy decision to join DPL,” said Titus. “DPL’s work to modernize insurance solutions and distribution is bringing needed change to our industry and delivering benefits across the entire insurance ecosystem. From product development to technical innovation, DPL enables RIAs to incorporate insurance and annuities into their practices at scale for the first time. I’m excited to hit the ground running and work with the already excellent sales team to support DPL’s customers and advance our mission.”
Titus earned his JD from Villanova and was a Sloan Fellow at the Stanford Graduate School of Business.
