Nationwide Property & Casualty names new head of agribusiness unit
Liggett succeeds Terrance Williams, who recently was named Nationwide’s executive vice president and chief marketing officer.
Mark Berven, Nationwide's president and chief operating officer, said Liggett’s strong business acumen and ability to execute on a strategic vision have helped him drive profit growth across multiple channels and geographic regions for the company.
"Liggett’s experience and collaborative leadership style make him a great fit to lead Nationwide Agribusiness,” Berven said.
Liggett has been with Nationwide for 30 years and most recently worked as independent channel regional vice president for the company’s Western Regional Operations in Sacramento, California. Previously, he spent six years as vice president for underwriting in the agribusiness unit, where he led several key strategic initiatives, including Farm Vision, Farm Agency Certification and Farm Service Center.
In Sacramento, he serves on the boards of United Way, where he is chairman of the Campaign Cabinet Committee, and the Center for Fathers and Families.
Liggett graduated from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln with a bachelor's degree in finance.
