NAPA, Calif. — F&I product provider AUL Corp. today announced the executive promotions of Bryan Nieves to vice president of national accounts and Henry Paoli to national sales manager.

Nieves previously served as the company’s national accounts manager, a role in which he successfully cultivated long-term relationships with dealers, finance sources, and agents over his 20-year tenure with AUL, the company noted. According to Jason Garner, senior vice president of sales and business development, Nieves was the driving force behind AUL’s Preferred Partner Lending Program and Reinsurance Initiative.

Paoli promotion from business development manager was the result of his ability to forge new relationships and generate results, the company said. While continually growing AUL’s agent client base, he remains focused on the long-term health of a client relationship vs. a short term gain. According to Garner, “It is this type of leadership style that represents the AUL Way.”

Prior to joining AUL Corp., Paoli spent more than nine years as regional sales manager for GE Capital and more than 23 years as a Major in the U.S. Army Reserves.

“Both Bryan and Henry continue to excel in their positions while embodying the values to which AUL Corp. continually strives to uphold,” Garner said. “We are so pleased to announce their promotions and anticipate there will be more exciting announcements to come as a result of these two individuals’ efforts and work ethic.”
