Steve Lang, formerly the president and CEO of Homesteaders Life Company – and who now sits on the company’s board of directors – has been appointed as a member of the Michigan Board of Examiners in Mortuary Science, according to a news release from the office of Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer.
His appointment is subject to confirmation by the state senate.
The Michigan Board of Examiners in Mortuary Science was created to license and regulate the practice of mortuary science and funeral establishments in Michigan. The board works with the Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs to oversee the practice of mortuary science licensees, residential trainees and funeral homes.
Lang retired as president and CEO of Homesteaders in 2018 after having been with the company since 2008. He was elected to its board of directors in 2013 and was board chair from 2015 to 2019. His current term on the board is not scheduled to end until 2028.
“Please help us congratulate Steve on his recent appointment,” Homesteaders said in a post on social media, which was accompanied by a graphic offering the company’s congratulations to its former chief.
In addition to leading Homesteaders, Lang is the former president and chief executive of Forethought Financial Group and the former president of Global Recruiters of Batesville.
