Granum Wins NAIFAs Russell Award
O. Alfred Granum, creator of the One Card System, is the winner of the 2002 John Newton Russell award.
The award is given to a living individual who has gone “above and beyond the call of duty” in making outstanding contributions to the life insurance business.
“We have had many industry giants who have been awarded with the John Newton Russell award that have made major contributions to the industry, but never one that had more impact for agents and advisors than tonights recipient,” said Larry Lambert, chairman of the JNR award selection committee, in announcing the award.
After serving in the Navy during World War II, Granum joined Northwestern Mutual, where he earned his Chartered Life Underwriter designation.
