Curiale To Receive Citation For 'Outstanding Community Service' From HeartShare

The Life Insurance Council of New York (LICONY) presented a citation to William J. Flynn, chairman and chief executive officer of Mutual of America, designating him as "outstanding CEO of the last twenty-five years." The decision to honor Flynn, was made at an executive session of LICONY's board last December. It was considered fitting to mark the end of the association's first twenty-five years of existence by recognizing the "most important CEO" of the industry during the entire span of years.

The board was unanimous in its feeling that "no one in the industry deserved the recognition" more than William J. Flynn.

The board also noted that Mutual of America has "enjoyed an unparalleled record of growth and financial success" under the "strong and vibrant leadership" of Mr. Flynn.
