Michael Erskine, vice president of national sales at PrimeVest Financial Services Inc., has resigned, citing "policy differences."

Mr. Erskine, 47, who joined the third-party marketing firm in early 1996, announced his departure Nov. 20. PrimeVest, which sets up brokerage units for banks and thrifts, has 675 clients.

Randall Ciccati, president and chief executive of PrimeVest, said Mr. Erskine's departure was a "mutual decision." He added that Ron Paulson, acting vice president for business development, and Randy Clark, acting vice president for retail sales, have assumed Mr. Erskine's responsibilities.

Mr. Erskine is one of several executives to leave PrimeVest since it was bought by Minneapolis-based ReliaStar Financial Corp. in October 1996. Stephen Fischer, president, left in January, followed a month later by Michael G. Lenzmeier, an executive vice president, and Doreen L. Strand, executive vice president of sales and marketing.
