Aegon, a provider of life insurance, pensions and asset management, has appointed Will Fuller as President and Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Transamerica and as a member of the Management Board.
Fuller, formerly Executive Vice President of Lincoln Group, has just under 30 years experience in insurance, annuities, retirement plans and wealth management.
He also served as co-chair of Lincoln’s Diversity & Inclusion Committee, and he will bring this commitment to a diverse and inclusive workplace to his new role at Transamerica.
He will succeed Mark Mullin who served as President and CEO for 11 years.
Mullin will become the new Chairman of the Transamerica Corporation Board of Directors, succeeding Don Shepard, who has retired from the role.
Mullin has worked for Aegon/Transamerica for 33 years, holding several leadership positions related to investments and the pension business, culminating in his appointment as President and CEO in 2009.
Lard Friese, CEO of Aegon Group, said: “I am excited to welcome Will to our company. He is a proven financial services leader with a distinguished track record. His deep understanding of our industry and personal drive make him the right person to lead our US business into the next stage of our transformation.
“I am grateful for Mark’s many contributions to the company. During his eleven-year tenure as CEO, he has overseen a wide array of new and creative solutions for customers, significant restructuring, system modernization, and a refresh of the strong Transamerica brand.
“I am very pleased that Mark will assist with the transition to Will and that we will continue to benefit from his experience and knowledge as Chairman of the Transamerica Corporation Board of Directors.”
