As LegalShield memberships hit record highs, the legal services provider is appointing a new senior vice president to take a critical look at internal development and training.
Patrick Hodges, formerly President of Network Sales and Marketing, is taking on the role of SVP, People and Organizational Development with LegalShield. In this capacity, he will help develop internal talent and identify gaps in personnel and organizational structure, in alignment with LegalShield’s five-year business plan, Vision 2020.
“Looking at the best strategic approach for LegalShield from the Board of Directors’ perspective, we determined that Patrick’s vast experience and people talents are a true asset to further develop our executive suite and achieve Vision 2020,” said John Addison, LegalShield Board Member and former Co-CEO of Primerica. “His newly created role will be special within the company as he will have a 360 degree view to all aspects of the organization.”
Hodges joined the company in 2012 as Vice President of Training and Associate Development. After advancing to head of network sales, he led efforts to restructure field leadership and redesign the compensation structure for LegalShield Associates. The segment achieved record growth and membership levels during his tenure, following three years of decline.
The company has not yet named a successor to the role of president, network sales and marketing.
