Locally based insurance giant Penn Mutual is prioritizing diversity, with the help of the team at Howard Fischer Associates.

We worked closely with Eileen McDonnell, Chairman and CEO, and Robert Rock, Chair of Governance Committee and Lead Director, to execute a board refreshment process. As a result three new exceptional board members were added to the PML board, two of which are diverse directors. They are the former Executive Vice President and President of TD Insurance, Bill Goings, and former President and Chief Operating Officer of AlliedBarton Security Services, Carol J. Johnson.

Penn Mutual is also one of only seven companies in the Fortune 1000 with both a female CEO and CFO. The company has been steadily rising on the Fortune 1000 list and believes its focus on diversity and the board and executive levels  has played a significant role in their growth.
