New role will focus on elevating final expense and simplified issue life sales.
AmeriLife Group, LLC (“AmeriLife”), a national leader in developing, marketing, and distributing annuity, life and health insurance solutions, has announced the promotion of David Paul to national sales director, Simplified Issue Life.
In this role, Paul will deliver sales leadership and support existing final expense and simplified issue life initiatives for AmeriLife’s Brokerage and Career Agency distribution groups, with a goal to expand the company’s final expense/simplified issue life insurance business across all distribution groups.
The COVID-19 pandemic has brought an increased awareness of the importance of life insurance. “AmeriLife wants to fill this need for consumers by expanding its emphasis on final expense and simplified issue life insurance,” said Scotty Elliott, president of AmeriLife’s Life & Health Distribution division. “We needed to have a leader in place to focus on this effort and are fortunate to have someone of David’s caliber already on our team and ready to move into this important role.”
Paul began his long career with AmeriLife in 1990 as president of American Publishing and Advertising, AmeriLife’s in-house ad agency at the time, where he developed advertising materials for insurance products geared toward the senior market. After a three-year stint with another financial organization, Paul returned to AmeriLife in 2008 as a marketing director with AmeriLife Marketing Group (AMG) in Clearwater, Fla. In 2013, he took the role of national marketing director with AmeriLife affiliate AAA Marketing Services in Asheville, N.C. Paul returned to AMG in 2014 where he has consistently been a high-achieving marketing director.
“I am honored that AmeriLife has selected me for this position,” said Paul. “I’ve learned over my time with the company that there is a vital need for final expense and simplified issue life insurance. More importantly, these products seamlessly align with the AmeriLife mission to help families and make one of the most difficult days of their lives more bearable.”
Paul attended Stockton University in Galloway Township, N.J. where he majored in fine art photography.
