Faces of Omaha is an annual sponsored publication that introduces a variety of “faces,” local industry leaders and experts, to the community. This exclusive publication was carefully cultivated​,​ so only one person and company per business category is invited to participate.

In the publishing industry, this sort of publication is known as “native advertising.” Native advertising is a unique form of sponsored content produced by editorial staff in conjunction with advertisers. The end result is an enjoyable book that has value to both the readers and advertisers.

Everyone featured in the book is truly the “face” of their field. Our sales team spent considerable time cultivating this list.

The following pages introduce more than 100 people and companies, the leaders in their respective areas of expertise, who stand ready to serve their community.

Family-owned businesses face unique challenges in regard to goal setting and succession planning. “Each generation has different risk tolerances and objectives, and those need to be clearly defined and communicated,” notes Rod Jewell of MassMutual.

Creating a succession plan helps ensure that a family business will continue to flourish when a family member develops a serious illness, dies, or retires. Taking a long-range view of the company’s future can be difficult if most of the owner’s time and energy is involved in getting from one month to the next, so it’s important to find a trusted adviser who can introduce the business owners to various options and help to engage in thoughtful planning. 

Jewell takes a holistic approach to working with family-owned businesses and enjoys helping them navigate the complexity of insurance benefits, investment strategies, and tax laws to help achieve a smooth transition of leadership. In addition to having 35 years of experience in life insurance, Jewell holds the following designations: certified family business specialist, certified life underwriter, and certified long-term care consultant.
