STEPHENVILLE, Texas — The Board of Directors of the National Farm Life Insurance and American Farm Life Insurance Co. has selected Tarleton State University’s Kyle McGregor as its next President.

Currently Tarleton Vice President for Institutional Advancement, Dr. McGregor begins his new duties July 1 as President-elect and will become NFLIC/AFLIC President and CEO in January 2021. He has served on the company’s Board of Directors since 2009.

Mark Bigsby, current NFLIC/AFLIC President, will retire but remain with the company during the transition.

“Dr. McGregor has had a long and successful tenure at Tarleton,” said university President James Hurley, “and his service is much appreciated. While he will be missed, this is a wonderful opportunity for him and his family. We wish him all the best.”

A Tarleton alumnus, McGregor joined the university in 2002 as an Assistant Professor in the College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences, advancing to Chief of Staff in 2012 and VP approximately three years later. Under his leadership, overall giving increased almost 200 percent and membership in the Tarleton Alumni Association increased 266 percent.

He played a major role in establishing the university’s permanent location in Fort Worth, working with donors and municipal and state officials, and he led governmental relations efforts for the past five Texas Legislatures.

“Tarleton is a special place to my family, and I have been fortunate to experience the university as a student, faculty member and an administrator,” he said. “I look forward to more experiences as an alumnus. National Farm Life and Tarleton share a unique culture, and I look forward to the opportunity to lead a service-oriented company that provides financial stability to individuals during some of the most uncertain times of their lives.”

McGregor holds a bachelor’s in agricultural services and development from Tarleton, and a master’s and doctorate in agricultural education from Texas Tech University. He and his wife, Jennifer, are proud parents of daughters Maggie and Meg.
