Former American Express Executive Brings Financial Experience

I’m honored to join a company with a 167-year history of keeping its promises to middle America.

Kim Goodman, a longtime financial services executive, has been elected to the board of directors at National Life Group.

Goodman most recently served in executive positions at American Express Company, including as President of American Express Global Business Travel, president of Merchant Services for Americas and Executive Vice President of Merchant Services for North America. Previously, she held senior positions at Dell Inc. in areas such as software and peripherals, marketing and transactional sales, and business development. Prior to that, she was a partner at Bain & Company.

“We’re excited to have someone with Kim’s breadth of experience join our board,” said Thomas MacLeay, chairman of National Life’s board. “She’s a delightful person who shares our values and we look forward to her contributions to our board.”

“I’m honored to join a company with a 167-year history of keeping its promises to middle America,” Goodman said. “I was attracted to National Life because of the culture it has built over the years. The company has a cause and it shows in every relationship it builds.”

Goodman also serves on the board of the Brocade networking solutions company and previously served as a director of Alcatel-Lucent SA and AutoNation Inc.

She earned a bachelor of arts in political science and a master of science in industrial engineering from Stanford University and a master of business administration from Harvard Business School.

Goodman replaces E. Miles Prentice, who retired earlier this month after 25 years on the National Life board.
