BBA Breakfast: Featuring Craig Lemasters--"How To Network With Purpose"

Craig Lemasters, former CEO of a Fortune 500 subsidiary, is an advisor, entrepreneur,
investor, and board member with more than two decades of success in executive leadership
positions, now dedicated to helping senior leaders get “unstuck” on the major growth
challenges to their businesses.

When Craig took over Atlanta-based Assurant Solutions in 2005, it was a $2 billion purely
domestic business focused almost entirely on a dying industry: Credit Insurance. Today,
Assurant is a dynamic, high growth, digitally-astute global provider of protection products
and other innovative digitally-focused risk management solutions.
Craig’s insistence on frank conversations about knowledge gaps, leading by doing, and
output-based strategies, reinvigorated the culture while focusing on growth—both
internationally and through new businesses, expanding from a solely B2B to include B2C
business and establishing Assurant in 25 new markets around the world.

Craig continues to build on his leadership philosophy as CEO of GXG, a learning firm that
facilitates strategic conversations between experts and clients to help them get unstuck
and accelerate change in their organizations. He is passionate about the application of
operator-based learning in advisory boards, leadership training, and especially succession
readiness. Craig speaks for a wide variety of industry and leadership audiences and
facilitates conversations to solve real problems around the world.


“There are always going to be people who
report to you that are smarter than you.
That’s a good thing. Understanding that
alone makes you a valuable leader. You
probably have people on your executive
team who could do your job. Don’t let a
day go by where you don’t appreciate
that. The best coaches—even the former
athletes—know that their best players and
assistant coaches can do great things that
they never could. Because of this, the best
coaches are humble and approachable.
They are dedicated to creating a winning
culture, where everyone embodies
shared goals; where individual talents are
maximized and individual weaknesses
mitigated. “
