How did you become involved with the Insurance Industry Charitable Foundation (IICF)?

I had the pleasure of spending a 30-year career with the Walt Disney Co., finishing as senior vice president of Public Affairs for Walt Disney Parks and Resorts. I was considering either going into education or nonprofit for my next experience, and I saw that the IICF was advertising for a CEO. I have been representing them and helping them grow for almost a decade. 

Can you describe what the IICF is and what it does, for those unfamiliar with its mission?

Our role is to provide companies with the opportunity to elevate the image of the insurance industry by promoting efforts that otherwise wouldn’t be reported or read about. This includes “invisible” volunteerism from teams or individuals who provide mentoring roles in schools, “big sibling” roles for young children, serve the homeless or provide food distribution in underserved areas after a disaster.

The organization has three main goals: to give grants (such as the three-year partnership we announced with the Sesame Workshop to promote literacy to at-risk preschool children); to find and raise money for regional volunteer opportunities; and to utilize the industry’s leadership expertise.
