The National Association of Insurance and Financial Advisors (NAIFA) has named Kevin M. Mayeux as the Association’s next Chief Executive Officer, effective July 1.
Mayeux, 45, is executive vice president, chief officer for North American operations and general counsel for the Institute of Internal Auditors (IIA), an international professional society with 185,000 members throughout 190 countries. In his leadership capacities, Mayeux oversaw more than 100 staff members at the Altamonte Springs, Fla., location. He will relocate to the Washington, D.C., area to manage operations from NAIFA’s headquarters in Falls Church, Va.
“Kevin is a successful and energetic association executive with a portfolio that addresses the needs and priorities identified by the NAIFA Board to move our Federation forward,” said NAIFA President Juli McNeely in a prepared statement. “Kevin’s management experience and track record for organizational growth will serve the Federation and our members well as NAIFA continues to adapt to the changing needs of this industry.
“We are an organization led by purpose: to help our members protect and grow their practices so they can serve America’s families and businesses who rely on our products to secure their financial futures,” she adds. “Kevin’s nearly 20-year association management career and his passion for growth and strategic direction make him the ideal choice to lead NAIFA.”
As CEO of NAIFA, Mayeux will oversee a staff of 58 in Falls Church. He will manage all external affairs of the Association, including relationships with life, health and financial service companies, other industry organizations, legislators and regulators. Internally, Mayeux will manage day-to-day headquarters operations, provide support and advice to NAIFA’s Board of Trustees and committees, coordinate Federation activities, and oversee NAIFA’s operating policies and procedures.
Mayeux succeeds Dr. Susan B. Waters, who served as CEO from 2010 until her passing in December 2014.
