Carstens Qualifies for Annexus® Inner Circle Network;
Plays in Annexus Pro-Am Golf Event with PGA Pro Rickie Fowler
ARNOLDS PARK, Iowa (February 10, 2014) – Kirt Carstens’ dedication toward helping his clients reach their dream of a comfortable retirement recently earned him two prestigious honors. Carstens qualified for the Annexus® Inner Circle and he took part in the Annexus® Pro-Am tournament that featured professional golfers and celebrities.
The Annexus® Pro-Am was played January 29, 2014, at the TPC Scottsdale, which hosts the Waste Management Phoenix Open, an annual PGA Tour tournament. The pro-am event was played the day before the four-day tournament teed off.
The pro-am featured teams of four amateurs who were joined by a professional golfer. Many of the amateurs were celebrity athletes and performers, including former Major League Baseball pitching great Randy Johnson, NBA legend Julius “Dr. J” Erving, country music star Jake Owen, NFL Hall of Famer Emmitt Smith, former all-pro quarterback Jim McMahon, and actor Joel Murray (brother of Bill Murray).
Carstens was teamed with Rickie Fowler, a 25-year-old up-and-comer on the PGA Tour who was named Rookie of the Year in 2010 and earned a spot on that year’s U.S. Ryder Cup team.
“It was a dream come true for me to play in this event,” said Carstens. “It was a lot of fun playing with Rickie. He’s extremely talented and a real nice young man. I really appreciate Annexus® for giving me this opportunity.”
Carstens was chosen to appear in the pro-am by qualifying for the Annexus® Inner Circle. The honor is reserved for the top 150 financial professionals representing Annexus®, which provides retirement income planning solutions using innovative technology to enhance product performance.
Annexus® is unique in that it hand-picks 5,000 out of 400,000 financial professionals worldwide to represent the company. Of the 5,000, only 150 succeed in reaching the Annexus® Inner Circle, which the company reserves for its “best of the best.”
To qualify, Carstens had to achieve production goals in his business. As part of the Annexus® Inner Circle, Carstens earned exclusive access to benefits and programs hosted all over the world.
“This is a huge honor for me,” Carstens said. “Plus, best of all, it will benefit my clients as I help them reach their dreams of a comfortable retirement. I’ll now have more access to some of the top minds in the industry on how to even better serve my clients.”
