Emily Ward

Assistant Vice President of Corporate Services


Name a person with whom you most would want to have dinner:
I would dine with Loretta Lynn, Matthew Weiner and Andy Warhol.

My first W-2 job was at 16, working as an office clerk for Kentucky Farm Bureau in my hometown. At the same time, I sold Direct TV in a call center (top seller for two quarters! LOOK OUT WORLD!!). During college, I sold digital media for IMG, worked as an Account Executive for UK’s newspaper the “Kentucky Kernel” and babysat as often as I could. I later began working on campaigns in Kentucky and worked for the Governor of Kentucky. Prior to coming to AALU, I worked on the Hill in the Capitol for Leader Mitch McConnell.

My Life at AALU:
I started on the Government Affairs Team and was there for six years working in the political & advocacy space. Now, I’m on the Corporate Sales Team where I manage our Issues Alliance Partnerships, working to empower other industry leaders to play a lead role in providing sustainable financial stability for the American public.
