USAA Announces Executive Reassignments

February 22, 2012

USAA announced today that Stuart Parker will become USAA’s chief financial officer, effective immediately, following the resignation of current CFO Kristi A. Matus, who will serve as special assistant to the CEO until her departure from the organization on March 2.

Parker brings strong experience in financial management to his new role.

Over the past five years, Parker served as president of USAA Property and Casualty Insurance Group.

Prior to leading USAA Property and Casualty Insurance Group, Parker served for more than three years as president and CEO of USAA’s Financial Planning Services.

“By executing our existing succession plans, we can move swiftly and judiciously while maintaining the chemistry among our senior team and therefore our tremendous momentum,” said USAA CEO Joe Robles. “Stuart is the ideal person to be USAA’s next CFO, given his financial experience and success in leading USAA’s largest P&L business over the past five years. I am confident that our other senior leaders will transition smoothly to their new responsibilities, given their exceptional leadership and deep understanding of USAA.”
