“In the last year, we’ve welcomed nine new companies to our AmeriLife family, and that number continues to grow. We’ve not only expanded our distribution, but also our supporting capabilities, as we strive to bring holistic solutions to meet the needs of pre-retirees and retirees,” said AmeriLife Chairman and CEO, Scott Perry. “Tim brings a wealth of knowledge and experience that will help us effectively respond to the changes associated with our continued expansion and growth. His expertise will raise the bar in advancing our operations to support our distribution partners.”
As a member of AmeriLife’s executive leadership team, Calvert will be responsible for leading all existing back- and middle-office functions, which include the company’s information technology group functions and third-party administrator (TPA) operations. He will also assume leadership in developing and deploying a broad-based, direct-to-consumer platform. Calvert will also establish several new functions, including a Strategic Planning and Resource group and an Enterprise Project Management Office.
“I’m passionate about working with insurance professionals to meet the needs of their clients and I am excited to support AmeriLife’s mission in offering insurance and retirement planning solutions to provide peace of mind and help people live longer, healthier lives,” said Calvert. “AmeriLife is recognized as a powerhouse in the industry, and I’m looking forward to helping the company exceed its strategic growth goals while adhering to its honored mission.”

Prior to joining BCG, Calvert served as the US Life & Annuity Insurance sector leader and the Chief Talent Officer for Industry Practices for Deloitte Consulting.
This new Chief Operating Officer role was created in response to AmeriLife’s rapid growth and accelerated merger and acquisition activity.
