John Greed/Mutual of America

After nearly a decade as CFO, and one year as president, John Greed assumed the role of CEO of Mutual of America Life Insurance company on April 1, 2016. Mutual provides retirement related services to more than 18,000 organizations and their employees, with a focus on non-profit, and social welfare clients.

Recently appointed to the board of the Life Insurance Council of New York, Greed also serves on the board of the Citizens Budget Commission, and the Greater New York Councils of the Boy Scouts of America. He is a longstanding supporter of his alma mater, LaSalle University.

Honored by Concern, the international relief organization founded in Ireland in 1968, Greed, who is German and Irish, drew on his own working class roots in Northeast Philadelphia, and the “hand-up” he received from people along the way.

Greed joined Mutual of America in 1996, after 14 years at Arthur Andersen.

He lives in Philadelphia with his wife, Teresa, and has two adult children, Tim and Megan.
