WINDSOR, Conn, July 19, 2010 — The Board of Directors for LL Global, parent company for LIMRA and LOMA, announced that Robert Kerzner will remain president and CEO of LIMRA, LOMA and LL Global for an additional five years.
“Over the past six years, Bob has made a tremendous impact on the value and relevancy of LIMRA; and following the merger with LOMA, his leadership has helped to strengthen both organizations,” said Dayton Moldendorp, chairman, president and CEO of OneAmerica Financial Partners, Inc.; and LL Global chairman. “We are so pleased to have Bob continue at the helm of this organization. This provides both stability and significant opportunity for LL Global that is good for both the organization, and the industry.”
Since joining LIMRA in 2004, Kerzner has greatly influenced both the organization and the industry as a whole. Under his leadership, the value of products and services LIMRA offered to member companies has improved as has the financial situation of the organization. Following the 2006 acquisition of research and consulting group Kenneth Kehrer Associates, Kerzner was instrumental in the successful merger with LOMA in 2008, which established LL Global. From the beginning of the integration process through the day-to-day running of the business, Kerzner has guided the two individual organizations into one seamless team, creating financial stability and expanding the breadth and depth of products and services.
In addition to revitalizing the research and services offered by both LIMRA and LOMA, Kerzner guided the remarkable growth and reach of their international business units, which today includes significant in-language and in-country services for its members and extends to more than 73 countries worldwide. Under his stewardship, both LIMRA and LOMA expand and revolutionize their business strategies—transforming the definition of what a trade association is.
Prior to joining LIMRA, Kerzner had a long and successful career at The Hartford. His 30-year career there culminated with Kerzner becoming executive vice president and head of the individual life division. Kerzner also led The Hartford into affiliated distribution with the acquisition of Woodbury Financial Services, a national broker-dealer organization with more than 1,800 independent representatives. Kerzner served as president of Woodbury following the acquisition.
