During her 44 years with Kroger, she held numerous leadership positions, including President of the Columbus division and President of the Michigan division.

Perry additionally serves on the board of trustees of The Ohio State University Foundation, the James Cancer Hospital Foundation, the Kimball-Midwest Advisory Board and the Chautauqua Institution Board of Trustees.

Grange Mutual Holding Company members have also elected a new board director, Kathie Andrade.

Most recently, Andrade served as Senior Executive Vice President and Chief Executive Officer of Retail Financial Services at Teachers Insurance and Annuity Association of America (TIAA) and led the business in providing banking, lending, insurance and investment solutions to five million retail customers. In 2016, she also led the $2.5 billion acquisition and integration of EverBank Financial Corporation, which led to the formation of TIAA Bank.

Andrade is a respected business leader known for her deep experience in financial services, operational excellence and design, technology strategy and deployment, and risk management.

“We are thrilled to have Kathie join the Grange Mutual Holding Company board of directors,” said Perry. “Her extensive knowledge and experience in the financial services industry, including operations, acquisitions and financial technology, will be a valuable asset to the board.”

Prior to TIAA, Andrade worked for Bank of America and its predecessor organizations for more than 20 years. There, she held various leadership positions including transition leadership roles during Bank of America’s acquisitions of Fleet, Merrill Lynch and U.S. Trust.

Andrade currently serves on the Board of Directors for The Brinks Company and Waddell & Reed Financial, Inc.
