Dan Amos is chairman and chief executive officer of Aflac Incorporated. For three consecutive years beginning in 2015, Harvard Business Review has listed him as one of the 100 Best-Performing CEOs in the World (No. 33). He is the second-longest tenured CEO in the Fortune 200, and his innovative leadership style has generated astounding annual revenue growth from $2.7 billion in 1990 to $21.7 billion in 2017.
In January 2000, Amos launched the popular “Aflac Duck” advertising campaign, transforming Aflac from a successful voluntary insurance company to a top international brand named by FORTUNE magazine in 2018 as one of America’s Most Admired Companies for the 17th year.
On September 17, Dan told our club the story behind the duck and its transformation of Aflac’s fortunes. Hear Dan’s talk here, part of Rotary Club of Atlanta’s “Leadership in Action” podcast series.
