He was promoted to Regional Director in April 2011 and then to Director, Sales in October 2016.

He has been a consistent member of the President’s Cabinet and holds FINRA licenses 7, 24 and 63 with Woodmen Financial Services.
  • Jeremy Carroll has been named Director, Sales, effective April 1. Carroll has been a rising star since joining WoodmenLife full-time as a Sales Representative in Virginia in 2009.
