National Planning Corp. has named Randy Miller as its new first vice president and director of practice management.

In his new role, Miller, 39, will oversee the broker-dealer holding company’s Pursuit Program, a comprehensive platform that offers customized practice management coaching and consulting services to NPC’s financial advisors.

Miller brings more than 13 years of industry experience to his new post, previously serving as a regional vice president with parent company Jackson National Life Insurance and with Genworth Financial. He also served as the director of a dedicated wealth advisory group with MetLife Investors.

“We’re really happy to welcome Randy back to NPC,” Lynn Niedermeier, NPC’s president and CEO, said in a statement. “His diverse financial services industry experience and strong existing relationships with our advisors make him an exceptional fit with the NPC team.”

Miller originally joined NPC in 2009 and served as vice president and practice management consultant until 2011. Prior to accepting the new position, he served as the vice president of sales for a start-up enterprise in the hospitality industry.

Miller replaces Jim Komoszewski, who has joined Investment Centers of America in a practice management role. He will report to Niedermeier and work out of the firm’s Santa Monica, Calif. headquarters.
