OMAHA – July 13, 2017 – On the heels of the Custom Product Series launch and an exciting new collaboration with Precoa, Physicians Mutual has another big announcement: Vice President Brice Ballard now leads the Company’s preneed distribution.

During his 15 years with Physicians Mutual, Ballard has managed a number of the company’s product lines and will now direct all preneed, life insurance and annuities operations. His experience includes innovative product design, financial analysis and marketing. Ballard graduated from the University of Iowa and in 1996 he became an actuary. Today he is a Fellow of the Society of Actuaries as well as a member of the American Academy of Actuaries.

In 2013, Ballard developed the Inflation Guard product, the profession’s first solution to a funeral home owner’s risk of shortfalls. He also created Physicians Mutual’s Cornerstone Index product, which gives funeral home owners the potential for more growth without sacrificing the security of their file cabinet.

“I’m excited about this opportunity,” says Ballard. “We have seen a lot of change in our five years in preneed. What hasn’t changed is who we are or what we represent. I look forward to our continued success with our Custom Product Series and new marketing partner, Precoa.”
