Greg Temple Named CEO

Catholic Order of Foresters Promotes Veteran Team Member to CEO

Catholic Order of Foresters (COF) announces its current Chief Investment Officer, Greg Temple, will be named Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the society effective August 1, 2019. Temple, who has been with the organization for more than two decades, said, “I’m humbled and excited, and I appreciate the support and confidence bestowed by Dave Huber and the board.”

Current President/CEO and Chairperson of the Board Dave Huber said, “Catholic Order of Foresters has benefited greatly over the course of many years by having Greg Temple oversee the management of the investment arm of the organization. His vast and varied experience uniquely qualify him to lead COF going forward.”

The role of CEO and Chairperson of the Board have always been one in the same for COF. In August 2016, the society’s bylaws were changed to require two separate people to fill the roles of CEO and Chairperson of the Board.

Temple is optimistic about the change. “COF has an excellent opportunity to succeed going forward,” he said. Huber elaborated, “I look forward to working with Greg as we begin to write the next chapter in COF’s long, proud history of helping Catholics protect their families’ futures.”

Dave Huber will continue serving as Chairperson of the Board/High Chief Ranger. Michael Deering, who currently holds the role of Vice President – Investments for COF, is in place to become Chief Investment Officer (CIO) of COF.

Established in 1883, COF is a not-for-profit Catholic life insurance society helping members achieve financial security while supporting the Catholic community through spiritual, social and community service projects, which it identifies as fraternal outreach. It is headquartered in Naperville, Ill., and has more than 114,000 members nationwide. COF is licensed in 32 states and Washington, D.C.
