Headshot Mike StephensNational Guardian Life Insurance Company (NGL), is pleased to announce the retirement of Mike Stephens, NGL Regional Vice President, on February 15, 2019. Stephens’ record in the funeral industry spanned over 35 years. During that time he became a well-known and influential executive who served in many leadership roles. His experience, track record and long-standing commitment to customer success were some of the strengths he brought to NGL in 2007.

“Mike has been an invaluable member of our marketing team for more than 10 years. Not only will he will be greatly missed by his friends at NGL but by his many customers who he developed meaningful friendships with. We have all benefited from his vision, leadership and knowledge,” said Steven M. Phelps, NGL Vice President & Director of Preneed Marketing.

Stephens shared, “My 10 years with NGL have been the most rewarding of my career. I believe as strongly today as when I started in this industry in the value of preneed, that is, helping people plan for the worst day of their survivor’s life. Thanks to NGL for allowing me to part of helping families receive the benefits of preplanning today and in the future.”

NGL has been preparing for Stephens’ retirement with the hiring of Cameron Black in January 2019 as Regional Vice President. Black joins NGL with many years of industry experience and worked closely with Stephens during the last few weeks to ensure a smooth transition.
