Former LISA Executive Director Doug Head Passes Away

WASHINGTON, DC., November 16, 2021

Through the Life Insurance Settlement Association’s (LISA) ongoing communication with its members and other market participants, we recently learned that former LISA Executive Director Doug Head passed away in Florida over the weekend following a long illness. Mr. Head led LISA for nearly a decade, from 2001 to late 2010.

LISA’s Board of Directors and membership would like to acknowledge, recognize, and reflect on the vast contributions that Doug Head had on the organization he led and the industry he helped grow. Mr. Head spearheaded LISA’s growth to become the largest trade association serving the life settlement industry by bringing all industry stakeholders together at the same table. In many ways, this work continues today as we look to drive further industry growth and serve the diverse market participants engaged in the life settlement community.
