AALU/GAMA Announces Plugged-In Thought Leader Series

CEOs and senior executives from leading life insurance carriers lend their perspective on key issues facing the profession


WASHINGTON, D.C.—Today, AALU/GAMA announced it will host a new on-demand series: Plugged-In. Each week, AALU/GAMA CEO Marc Cadin will interview the biggest names and most innovative leaders of life insurance carriers. The series is a part of Beacon: A Virtual Experience set to launch on July 22.


“We gathered the largest carriers in the business to provide their candid advice, observations, and wisdom on challenges facing the profession and what we can do to move forward,” said Marc Cadin, AALU/GAMA CEO. “Financial security professionals will get a rare glimpse on the thoughts of top CEOs as they address the wide range of concerns affecting the profession. Each of these interviews will focus on best practices and tactics to elevate your business and provide valuable insight from the carrier perspective.”


Speakers will be announced weekly and include leaders such as John Schlifske, CEO of Northwestern Mutual; Joe Monk, vice president of State Farm Insurance; Brooks Tingle, CEO and president of John Hancock Life Insurance; Caroline Feeney, CEO of Individual Solutions for Prudential Financial Inc.; Eric J. Thomes, Chief Distribution Officer of Allianz Life Insurance Compnay of North America; and many more. You can access new interviews every Wednesday, beginning on July 22, and will be featured in the on-demand ‘Spotlight’ section of Beacon: A Virtual Experience.


Cadin continued, “These conversations with some of the leading voices of life insurance distribution offer unique outlook on the future of the industry. We were able to have an open, honest dialogue on the current state of affairs, how products may change in a post-COVID world, and anticipated modifications to life insurance distribution. Every level of the profession will have something to benefit by tuning in to this series.”


Beginning on July 22, Beacon: A Virtual Experience will feature dynamic speakers, exclusive content, on-demand sessions, and professional development opportunities for the entire financial security profession. The event will run July 22 – September 30. You can learn more about Beacon here.
