  • Midwest Holding Announces CEO and Board Chair Changes

    November 22, 2021 by Midwest Holding Inc

    LINCOLN, Neb.Nov. 22, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Midwest Holding Inc (“Midwest”) (NASDAQ: MDWT) today announced that A. Michael Salem, one of the company’s Co-Chief Executive Officers, has resigned as an officer and director and will leave the company, effective immediately. 

    Georgette C. Nicholas was appointed as Chief Executive Officer and a member of Midwest’s board of directors (the “Board”).  Ms. Nicholas was previously the company’s President and Chief Financial Officer. Ms. Nicholas will continue as interim Chief Financial Officer until the company hires a replacement. Mike Minnich was named President and will no longer serve as Co-Chief Executive Officer. He will continue as the Chief Investment Officer.  Independent director John T. Hompe was appointed as Non-Executive Chair of the Board.

    “On behalf of the Board, we thank Michael for his dedication to Midwest and for the valuable contributions he has made since 2018 – we wish him well for the future,” Hompe said. “He has led the company through a period of growth and innovation and leaves Midwest in a position to build upon.  We are very pleased that Georgette has agreed to serve as the new Chief Executive Officer. She brings more than 30 years’ experience in the global financial services industry including insurance, reinsurance and capital markets experience.  Ms. Nicholas has leveraged her business and financial acumen to drive strategy and results that the Board believes are important to Midwest’s success as we navigate the next few years to drive the Company forward.  These changes will allow Mike to focus on key operational and investment initiatives, while Georgette will focus on the execution of the company’s focused strategy.  With Georgette, Mike and the rest of the team, the Board is confident the company will be able to capitalize on its strengths and work to increase shareholder value.”  

    “I have the utmost confidence in the future of Midwest under Georgette’s leadership.  She is the leader we need for this next stage of Midwest.  Michael has been a tremendous partner and incredible innovator.  We built this business model from the ground up together and I am sad to see him go.  As we move forward, we will be focused on execution and Georgette has my full support,” remarked Minnich.

    Nicholas said, “I am excited to take on the role of Chief Executive Officer of Midwest.  We have a strong team and will remain focused on our priorities to build shareholder value.  The business is strongly capitalized, and we will work to improve our performance and build on the foundation in place.  I look forward to working with the Board and team as we maintain our focus on creating value for all our stakeholders.” 

    Ms. Nicholas brings public company experience as the previous CEO and Managing Director for Genworth Mortgage Insurance Australia, a publicly listed ASX company in Sydney, Australia along with various roles at Genworth Financial, Inc. in investor relations, and chief financial officer roles.  Ms. Nicholas also worked in public accounting, including as a firm director with Deloitte.

    Hompe was the Managing Partner and co-founder of J.P. Charter Oak Advisors LLC, a private investment firm focused on the financial services industry from 2012 to 2019. Mr. Hompe has worked in the financial services sector for more than 35 years. He has held numerous board positions with insurance companies during his career.
