Eric B. Goodman, retired chief investment officer of AEGON USA (now known as Transamerica), was elected to the Securian Financial Group board of directors at its February meeting.

“Securian’s financial strength begins with strong corporate governance, which is a result of the dedication and expertise of its outstanding board members,” said Bob Senkler, chairman and CEO, Securian Financial Group. “Eric has extensive experience with investment markets and is a valuable addition to our board of directors.” Goodman will serve on the board’s investment and audit committees.

Goodman joined Providian Corporation nearly 30 years ago. He was director of fixed income securities and derivatives when Providian was acquired by Transamerica, where he held several positions of increasing responsibility. Transamerica provides multiple financial products and services including life insurance, retirement plans and asset management services. Goodman retired as chief investment officer in 2011 and lives in Louisville, KY.

Goodman has a bachelor’s degree and an MBA from Indiana University. He also is a Chartered Financial Analyst.

Since 1880, Securian Financial Group and its affiliates have provided financial security for individuals and businesses in the form of insurance, investments and retirement plans. Now one of the nation’s largest life insurance groups, it is the holding company parent of several companies.

Insurance products are issued by Minnesota Life Insurance Company in all states except New York where products are issued by Securian Life Insurance Company, a New York authorized insurer. Both companies are headquartered in Saint Paul, MN and each insurer is solely responsible for the financial obligations under the policies and contracts it issues. Product availability and features may vary by state.
