Wendy Waugaman’s Passing
June 19, 2012 by Sheryl J. Moore
The following message was sent by David J. Noble, Founder and Executive Chariman of American Equity Investment Life on June 19, 2012:
“It is with great sadness that I must inform you that American Equity has lost a special friend and significant team member. Wendy Waugaman has been fighting a long and courageous battle with cancer but surrendered her battle yesterday evening.
We extend our sincere sympathy to Lou, their families and friends.”
I would just like to personally add that this is a very sad day for the annuity industry. Wendy was not only a successful female executive in the insurance market, but she had a tremendous understanding of our business. She had true “skin in the game,” and always voiced her opinion when she felt strongly about something. She stood-up for the distribution of American Equity and our industry as a whole. The insurance industry has experienced a tremendous loss in her passing. sjm
