Despite enormous institutional and societal hurdles that have been present for centuries, the past few years have seen a shift in attitudes across the nation as more and more individuals, groups, and companies seek to put diversity and inclusion first while seeking solutions to help close the persistent racial wealth gap. Moreover, the profiles of Black and Brown difference-makers are becoming more and more known, with many standing as household names for communities of all backgrounds.

In keeping with this wave of change, The American College of Financial Services is proud to announce our President and CEO George Nichols III has been named to Forbes’ inaugural issue of “The Culture 50 List” recognizing 50 Black and Brown champions making an impact on society through capital, creativity, and connections. 

As the State of Kentucky’s first Black insurance commissioner and the first Black president of the National Association of Insurance Commissioners, as well as the first Black president of The College, Nichols continues to use his platform and expertise to call for change in the financial services industry and sustainable, economic solutions that last through The College’s Center for Economic Empowerment and Equality. Nichols shares the company of other well-known public figures on the list, including star athletes Dwayne Wade and Colin Kaepernick, Hollywood producer Issa Rae, and more.
