Insurance company CEO named

Longtime insurance industry executive, attorney and business consultant Monica Miller Collison has been named president and CEO at Union Mutual Insurance Co.

Collison previously led a large domestic insurance company and general farm organization for over a decade. After her departure from her executive post in 2017, she has spent her time building, owning and operating her own executive consulting business, law practice and a nonprofit organization.

“Monica is a natural fit for Union Mutual,” Union Mutual Interim CEO Ryan Leonard said. “She will be working with staff, agents and consumers on a daily basis. Her knowledge of the insurance industry and the state of Oklahoma from border to border will serve the company well moving forward as Union increases its market share throughout the state.”
