Aflac Incorporated Names Charles D. Lake II As President, Aflac International

COLUMBUS, Ga., Jan. 24, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Aflac Incorporated announced today that it has named Charles D. Lake II to serve as president of Aflac International, reporting to Aflac and Aflac Incorporated Chairman and CEO Daniel P. Amos. In addition, Lake has been named to Aflac International's board of directors. Aflac International is a wholly owned subsidiary of Aflac Incorporated. Lake will continue to serve as chairman of Aflac Japan, a position he has held since 2008.

In this key leadership role, Lake will be responsible for the development and implementation of strategies to address initiatives in international public affairs, particularly in response to global standards-setting entities such as the International Association of Insurance Supervisors (IAIS) and the Financial Stability Board (FSB).

Lake brings nearly three decades of professional experience to this new position. He joined Aflac International in February 1999 and Aflac Japan in June 1999, becoming deputy president in 2001, president in 2003, vice chairman in 2005, and chairman in 2008. Prior to his approximately 15-year career with Aflac, Lake practiced law in Washington, D.C. and also served as director of Japan Affairs and special counsel at the Office of the U.S. Trade Representative in the Executive Office of the President. 

Regarding Lake's new role, Dan Amos commented, "Charles' extensive knowledge of Aflac's core business operations and his vast experience in international economic policy makes him ideally suited for this role. He is an exceptional leader and a highly respected professional, both internally and externally. We anticipate he will continue to build on his record of excellence in his newly expanded role representing the company on a full range of international issues."
