The Homesteaders Life Co. board of directors has appointed Steve Shaffer as the company’s 10th president and CEO, effective March 15. The vote completed the West Des Moines-based insurer’s planned leadership transition process announced in May 2017. “Steve Shaffer’s appointment was a clear and easy choice for the board,” said Steve Lang, Homesteaders’ chairman and outgoing president and CEO. “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.” Before joining Homesteaders as chief operating officer in 2014, Shaffer co-founded and was president and CEO of Foundation Partners Group LLC, and was a co-founder and CFO of Keystone Group Holdings Inc. Lang was recently re-elected to the board of directors for another five-year term and will serve as chairman through February 2019.
