GattiHR Assists American National in Recruiting a New Chief Financial Officer

GattiHR recruits Brody Merrill as American National’s new Chief Financial Officer. J.L. Baker led this search.

American National offers a broad variety of life insurance, retirement annuities, accident and health insurance, pension plan products and services, credit insurance, and property/casualty insurance for personal lines, agribusiness and targeted commercial exposures.

As a key member of the leadership team, the CFO will have significant responsibility and visibility not only as a financial leader, but culture driver for the organization. Effective change management, strategic thinking and the ability to design scalable solutions will be keys to success in this role, particularly when paired with the objective of retaining the Company’s strong, high-integrity and compliance culture. A player/coach mentality will be paramount and continuing to evolve the way in which the Finance function operates both inside and outside the Company is critical.
