    How Aflac's duck was created

    In early 2000 when insurance company Aflac (AFL) was attempting to increase its brand recognition, which at the time was hovering around 11%, longtime CEO Dan Amos decided to take a risk. He took a bet on an advertising campaign that featured two men on a park bench talking about insurance, featuring a duck quacking, “Aflac.” The concept was created by advertising agency The Kaplan Thaler Group, after two of its creative agents were sitting around a lake in Central Park discussing ad campaign options for the company. They heard ducks quacking, which to them sounded like, “Aflac.” The concept was taken to Amos, who agreed to run with it. It turns out the duck was a huge success and within three years Aflac doubled its sales, according to Aflac, and now has a brand recognition around 90-95%. Amos says, the duck is their golden goose.

    How the first female executive of Aflac Japan was promoted

    Dan Amos, the long time CEO of healthcare insurance company Aflac (AFL) prides himself on equality and diversity in the workplace. In Japan, where Aflac conducts close to 70% of its business, Amos was confused as to why women were not being promoted to executive leadership positions. He asked the senior leadership team in Japan to give him the names of qualified female candidates to promote. After two years of back and forth, the Japanese leadership at Aflac came back empty-handed. Amos then turned the tables and rejected a list of male promotions he was asked to sign off on. Amos says, “God touched them that night,” and they came back to him with a candidate. In 1997 Mikie Yumoto, became the first female senior vice president of Aflac Japan.
