Robert Dudacek Promoted to President of Insurance Products

STAMFORD, CT--(Marketwired - Oct 21, 2013) - Affinion Group, the global leader in enabling companies to connect and engage with their customers, thereby creating rewarding relationships and enhancing brand loyalty, today announced the promotion of Robert Dudacek to President of Insurance Products. Affinion's insurance business has performed steadily for the company, offering peace-of-mind to more than 25 million families annually since 2010, and today, the company is the largest third party administrator of insurance services in the US. Moving forward, Mr. Dudacek will be tasked with leading growth initiatives for the insurance division, including expanding the product lines and distribution channels that Affinion already has in place.

"Throughout his career, Robert has effectively generated growth opportunities for the companies he's worked with, through innovative product design and unique distribution partnerships," said Todd Siegel, CEO of Affinion Group. "His experience identifying and solidifying opportunities to increase revenue should dovetail with our reputation as an insurance leader to kick start a new period of consistently impressive results across our insurance division."

A native of La Grange, IL, Mr. Dudacek earned his Bachelor of Science in economics from DePaul University, and his MBA from the University of Minnesota. He boasts more than 25 years of experience in various leadership roles in financial service and insurance companies. He joined Affinion earlier this year, after spending seven years as SVP of the Direct Response Insurance Group at Wells Fargo. While at Wells Fargo, Mr. Dudacek was responsible for driving strategy and marketing of consumer insurance and other products for the bank and its affiliates. He was also a key stakeholder in the relationship between Wells Fargo and Affinion.

"I had the opportunity to see first-hand the talented team that Affinion has assembled, from marketing and analytics through creative and account management, and have been very impressed by the depth and breadth of the capabilities across the organization," said Mr. Dudacek. "I believe, based on the demonstrable leading skills the company brings to the table, that the pieces are already in place for us to meaningfully grow Affinion's insurance business."
