Chief Executive Officer
Climate change is an important issue for the insurance industry and top-of-mind for Horace Mann, as we work every day to protect our customers’ property and help them recover from hurricanes, windstorms, hail, severe winter weather, wildfires and earthquakes. Horace Mann is committed to understanding and managing the risks of climate change as they affect our company, customers and communities. We also continue to find ways to reduce our company’s environmental impact.
Horace Mann strives to have a significant positive social impact as an insurance company and employer. Our safe driving portfolio of initiatives is building awareness of the risks of distracted driving and providing tools that help change driving behaviors. Our investment strategy factors in environmental, social and governance considerations; our products and services, governance practices and data security policies are designed to protect customers; and we are strongly committed to diversity and inclusion, supporting and developing our talent, and giving back to our communities.
At Horace Mann, we consider it incredibly important to make decisions — at every level — in a way that is consistent with our Code of Ethics, Code of Conduct and sound governance principles. In accordance with corporate governance best practices, we have separated the Chairman and CEO roles, have a majority of independent directors, and align executive compensation with shareholder value metrics and corporate objectives. We strive to do the right thing and hold ourselves accountable for our actions and results.
