Pittman promoted to lead Community Affairs; Baker hired to direct media and public relations
INDIANAPOLIS (July 17, 2017) — OneAmerica®, an Indianapolis-based national leader in financial services, announced today that two native Hoosiers will fill key public-facing positions.
Jennifer Pittman has been named assistant vice president for community affairs while Lou Ann Baker will serve as public relations director. Pittman was promoted to replace Jim Freeman, who retired at the end of May after 27 years with OneAmerica.
“We’ve been committed to community engagement throughout our 140-year history,” said Scott Davison, OneAmerica chairman, president and CEO. “By filling these two key outreach roles with local leaders, we will further our connections to nonprofit and civic organizations that strengthen our hometown.”
Since the year 2000, OneAmerica and The OneAmerica Foundation have invested more than $25 million into community causes including education, the arts and other non-profit/civic organizations. Each year, OneAmerica contributes thousands of hours of community service to charitable organizations in all of the cities in which the company has a home office.
Both Pittman and Baker share backgrounds in strategic communications, public policy and community outreach, and have served in public and private sector positions. “Jennifer and Lou Ann aren’t just business savvy, but community minded and service oriented, and that’s vital to our mission of serving Main Street, not Wall Street,” said Kelly Huntington, OneAmerica senior vice president of Enterprise Strategy, whose responsibilities include community affairs and corporate communication.
