Few companies would seem more perfectly positioned to benefit from the 78 million wave of Baby Boomers retiring in the coming decades than TIAA-CREF, which, since established by Andrew Carnegie in 1918 as the Teachers Insurance and Annuity Association, has been known for retirement services.

It's Maliz Beams' job to make sure that TIAA-CREF positions itself properly to ride that wave by offering individuals and institutions the advice they need. She oversees all of TIAA-CREF's areas responsible for Individual and Institutional Client Services, including the company's wealth management group; advice and planning; insurance, trust, brokerage and wealth product management; telephone counseling centers; on-campus field consulting group and institutional relationships. She also serves as president and CEO of TIAA-CREF Individual & Institutional Services and as a member of the company's executive management team.
