Appointment to advance product development initiatives and expand leadership team.
AmeriLife Group, LLC (“AmeriLife”), a national leader in developing, marketing and distributing annuity, life and health insurance solutions, today named Patrick J. (Pat) Fleming as Executive Vice President Product Innovation & Corporate Actuary. This announcement comes as the company intensifies its partnership with leading carriers to deliver proprietary and other financial solutions to the pre-retiree and retiree market.
Fleming will report directly to AmeriLife CEO Scott R. Perry as part of the company’s executive leadership group. He brings to AmeriLife more than 30 years of actuarial and operating experience in health and life insurance. Most recently, Fleming served as Chief Operating Officer, Senior Supplemental Insurance, at Aetna.
“Pat’s deep understanding of competitive product design and marketing from the standpoint of both carriers and sales organizations will be a tremendous asset to our company,” Perry said. “As AmeriLife continues to expand the scope of support for insurance agents and financial advisors, Pat’s strong industry relationships and proven track record in developing and overseeing successful product launches will position us well for continued growth.”
Fleming succeeds Charlie Thalheimer, Corporate Actuary, who will continue as an executive advisor supporting the transition, and other key initiatives, until his retirement at year-end. “Charlie led the successful introduction of several new product offerings and carrier relationships during his more than nine years with AmeriLife,” Perry added. “We are grateful for his many contributions to AmeriLife and we appreciate his continued support as we bring to market a number of new products in 2019.”
“Pat’s appointment is our latest step in building an outstanding leadership team,” Perry explained. “It follows the promotion of Frank Tebyani as Senior Vice President and now President of the AmeriLife Career channel, and the hiring of Barb Stewart as Executive Vice President, Marketing & Strategy. Frank, Barb and the entire leadership team helped drive a record-breaking year in 2018. With Pat’s additional contributions, we expect even stronger revenue and earnings growth in 2019.”
