We thank CNO Financial and Bankers Life for years of dedicated partnership and we look forward to the next phase of our relationship."

CNO Financial Chief Executive Officer Gary Bhojwani says "we achieved and exceeded many of our sponsorship goals throughout the length of this partnership. CNO is proud to be headquartered in central Indiana and to support the communities where our associates live and work. We are actively working with Pacers Sports & Entertainment to identify the next phase of our collaboration together."
