Ameriprise Financial Honors Shea Stremcha


On January 12, the first annual “AAC (Ameriprise Advisor Center) Leadership Award in Memory of Shea Stremcha” was presented to Nick Ternes, who had been a fellow advisor with Shea at Ameriprise Financial.  The award was created to recognize leadership qualities Shea exhibited as a personal financial advisor within the AAC.  In presenting the award, Matthew Kley, Shea’s former sales manager and friend, praised Shea’s commitment to a long-term, sustainable business model and recognized him for being dedicated to his craft and helping others achieve greatness – both inside and outside work. 

Mr. Kley further acknowledged that Shea always met his personal sales goals, maintained exemplary client relationship activity, assisted others through active participation as a coach in the AAC’s peer coaching program and provided team leadership for community activities such as organizing his team’s participation in Ameriprise’s Habitat for Humanity build. 

“Shea embodied the Advisor role and peer coaching in the same way he personified what it means to be a contributing member of society”, he said.

Upon accepting, Mr. Ternes said he had always admired Shea for his hard work, commitment to helping clients and his cheerful personality.  Mr. Ternes added he was deeply honored to be recognized as the first recipient of this award.
