Carmel-based CNO Financial Group Inc. (NYSE: CNO) has announced a new chairman of its board of directors. Daniel Maurer, who has served on the board since 2015, succeeds Neal Schneider, who is retiring as chairman after seven years.
During his tenure on the board, Maurer has been a member of its Human Resources and Compensation Committee and Governance and Nominating Committee. He has previously held leadership roles at Intuit Inc. (Nasdaq: INTU), Procter & Gamble Co. (NYSE: PG), and Campbell Soup Co. (NYSE: CPB).
"I am honored to serve as chairman of the CNO board of directors," said Maurer. "On behalf of the CNO board, I thank Neal for his dedicated leadership, and I look forward to working with him as CNO continues to provide insurance and financial solutions to middle-income working Americans and retirees."
CNO says Schneider will remain on the board after the transition. The company’s shareholders also elected Maurer, Schneider and seven other directors to serve terms expiring at CNO’s 2019 shareholders meeting.
