MINNEAPOLIS, April 29, 2022 – Thrivent, a Fortune 500 diversified financial services organization, recently announced the results of its national board of directors election. As a membership-owned organization, Thrivent clients with eligible membership have an opportunity to select the candidates who will represent them on the national board of directors.

Thrivent’s board consists of 14 members and is led by Bonnie E. Raquet, board chair. As the organization’s supreme governing body, the board oversees all matters involving Thrivent and focuses on serving the interests of our clients, now and into the future. Thrivent continues to be financially strong and stable, and well-positioned to transform and serve more clients.

Three incumbents reelected to board of directors
Incumbents Deborah “Debbie” A. Ackerman, Mark A. Jeske and Nichole “Nikki” B. Pechet were elected to serve terms, which started in February 2022.

Jeske has been on the board since May 2011, and he currently serves on the Finance and Audit, Governance and Investment committees. Pechet has been on the board since 2018 and serves on the Investment and Strategy committees.

“As members of our board, Debbie, Mark and Nikki have demonstrated their commitment to fulfilling Thrivent’s purpose of helping people make the most of all they’ve been given, and I’m thrilled our members have reelected them to serve another term,” said Terry Rasmussen, president and CEO of Thrivent. “Their keen business perspectives and insights are driving our ongoing transformation into a holistic financial services organization.
