Shaffer Appointed Homesteaders President and CEO
West Des Moines, IA – The Homesteaders Life Company Board of Directors has appointed Steve Shaffer as the company’s 10th President and CEO in a vote that marked the final step of the company’s strategically planned leadership transition.
“Steve Shaffer’s appointment was a clear and easy choice for the Board,” affirmed Homesteaders Chairman and outgoing President and CEO Steve Lang. “Over the last few years, he has shown remarkable commitment to our company and earned the confidence of our funeral home customers, marketing partners and employees. He is ideally placed to ensure Homesteaders’ continued success.”
“Homesteaders is well positioned to continue its tradition of growth, profitability and financial strength,” observed Shaffer. “Steve Lang has been diligent in preparing for this transition, and I am honored to assume custodianship of the company.”
Prior to joining Homesteaders as COO in 2014, Shaffer co-founded and served as President and CEO of Foundation Partners Group, LLC, and was a co-founder and CFO of Keystone Group Holdings, Inc. He has served as a Funeral Service Foundation Trustee since 2010 and was the Foundation’s 2014-15 Board Chair.
Shaffer’s appointment will take effect on March 15. Lang was recently reelected to the Board for another five-year term and will continue to serve as Chairman through February 2019.
