Aflac General Counsel Joey M. Loudermilk visits Regent Law School

On March 31st, Joey M. Loudermilk, General Counsel, Corporate Secretary and Executive Vice President of Aflac, spoke with Regent students and faculty about the interplay between his faith and his high-profile position.

As general counsel, Loudermilk oversees Aflac’s legal, corporate, and public policy issues. He attributes his position and accomplished resume to God’s hand in his life, saying in reference to Psalm 139 that “God ordained my days before even one came to be.” He said (smiling) that the juxtaposition of his “average” law school career alongside his professional success clearly highlights the providential plan of God in his life.

He attributes Aflac’s success as a Fortune 200 company to the integrity of the people it hires. Pointing out that the reputation of a company falls on the shoulders of its employees, he urged students to recognize the place of God in their own lives and to contemplate what impact that will have on their work. Noting that “it takes a lifetime to build a good reputation, but only a moment to undo it,” he encouraged the Regent Law community to uphold integrity in a career where it can be so easily disregarded.

Loudermilk was joined by Aflac colleague Bradley Knox (Regent Law ’94), Counsel and Special Vice President. Both men were able to interact informally with students, providing professional advice and encouraging them in their calling.
