Title: Head of In-Plan Guaranteed Income Products; Advanced Mathematics Teacher
Company: Nationwide Financial
Location: Delaware, Ohio, United States
Lonie D. Moore, Advanced Mathematics Teacher and Head of In-Plan Guaranteed Income Retirement Products at Nationwide Financial, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Executives for dedication, achievements, and leadership in education and actuarial science.
A curious and driven student with a personality that “would never let him stop asking questions,” Mr. Moore discovered a gift for mathematics at a young age that allowed him to socialize and connect with others in ways that he felt would have been impossible otherwise. Raised in a community with high poverty rates and many social challenges, Mr. Moore initially planned to skip college, reasoning that his mathematical abilities would be enough to launch a career without continuing education. On the advice of a mentor, he instead enrolled at Bowling Green State University, earning a Bachelor of Science in actuarial mathematics and German.
Mr. Moore attended West Virginia University in 2013, where he became the first-ever graduate student to teach calculus-based statistics for engineers and scientists as an instructor. Mr. Moore earned the Outstanding Graduate in Statistics award and received the highest score in the history of the program on the theoretical portion of his MS Comprehensive Exam, before completing his Master’s degree in statistics in 2014. Mr. Moore completed his education at Xavier University, graduating at the top of his class from their highly competitive Executive Master of Business Administration program in 2018.
Currently, Mr. Moore is the head of In-Plan Guaranteed Income Retirement Products for Nationwide Financial, a position that allowed him to return to central Ohio, and is in the process of completing his Retirement Income Certified Professional certification. Mr. Moore has a FINRA Series 6 designation and has completed several professional exams through the Society of Actuaries. Prior to joining Nationwide Financial, Mr. Moore spent several years with Protective Life working as AVP Sales and Distribution Analytics, he began his career as a pension actuary at Willis Towers Watson, and he credits much of his technical skillset to experience he gained while working in a life insurance and annuity product management role he held for many years at Lafayette Life Insurance Company, a subsidiary of Western & Southern Financial Group, where he spent most of his time working with designated actuaries.
In summer 2021, Mr. Moore launched his own private tutoring and education services company, Math Rescue, LLC. He loves teaching in his spare time, has taught Business Statistics for several years at Xavier University, and has taught actuarial mathematics (life contingencies), a senior-level advanced course for mathematics majors. He recently accepted an offer to teach for the Department of Finance at his undergraduate alma mater, Bowling Green State University, where he will be teaching Finance 4140, Retirement and Employee Benefits Planning.
Mr. Moore is a veteran staff member of the American Model United Nations conference in Chicago, Illinois. Since 2019, Mr. Moore has served as the Fundraising & Scholarships Coordinator on the alumni board of directors for the Academic Year Abroad (AYA) Salzburg German language study abroad program at Bowling Green State University.
In his personal life, Mr. Moore enjoys spending time with his daughters (Grace, Emily, and Zuri), playing the guitar, attending Drum Corps International World Championships, visiting the Jazz Kitchen in Indianapolis with his friend Ed Burns, attending Guns N’ Roses concerts as often as possible, and participating in alumni activities such as Xavier University’s X-Band (pep band), the All Ohio State Fair Youth Choir (AOSFYC) alumni day, and his high school marching band alumni night at Highland High School in Sparta, Ohio.
The importance of strong mentors, an innate curiosity, and a passion for teaching have been consistent themes in Mr. Moore’s life, and he credits much of his professional success to the guidance he has received from educators, role models, and colleagues. Ultimately, Mr. Moore hopes to teach at The Ohio State University, and professionally, he aspires to one day be a Chief Financial Officer.
