Mutual of America gratefully acknowledges Clifford L. Alexander, Jr., for his 31 years of professional excellence, extraordinary service and unwavering commitment to the Company’s mission. Mr. Alexander, who retired in June of 2020, is in a class of his own for effectively serving as Lead Independent Director to all three of the Company’s Chief Executive Officers, helping navigate through numerous challenges during those years, which led to a tremendous period of growth for Mutual of America. His contributions as the Lead Independent Director, Chairman of the Law and Corporate Governance Committee, and as a longtime member of both the Executive and Nominating Committees, have been instrumental in Mutual of America’s success and growth from a small retirement association into one of the country’s most highly respected financial services companies. Mutual of America is truly thankful for Mr. Alexander’s unparalleled leadership, intelligence, sound business judgment, strength of character and unwavering integrity over the past three decades.
Mutual of America salutes Frances R. Hesselbein for her unparalleled 40 years of leadership, steadfast devotion and service to the Company. A renowned expert on the topic of leadership, Mrs. Hesselbein served on both the Executive and Nominating Committees and was the Chair of the Product and Marketing Committee, helping to guide the Company with her wisdom, insights on effective leadership and passion for caring, giving back and making a real difference in local communities. Her knowledge, understanding and deep connection to the nonprofit social welfare sector led to the creation in 1996 of the Mutual of America Community Partnership Award, on whose Selection Committee she served. Since then, 245 nonprofit organizations and partnerships across America have been recognized for creating unique, innovative and effective solutions to help those in need. Mutual of America is grateful for Mrs. Hesselbein’s years of dedicated service and will continue to be inspired by her example and leadership style.
