Columbus, OH (March 20, 2023) – Grange Insurance has named Carrie Maun-Smith as its new assistant vice president of Diversity, Equity & Inclusion and Community Relations, effective the beginning of April, as former leader Priscilla Hammonds steps down from the role to relocate to Florida.

With Grange Insurance for nearly nine years, Maun-Smith has previously served as VP, Enterprise Strategy and AVP, Customer Experience and Digital Transformation. During her tenure with Grange, Maun-Smith has been an active community leader and advocate involved in numerous non-profit organizations, including Maryhaven, Inc., New Directions Career Center and A Kid Again.

A dedicated leader with A Kid Again, she is a former national board chair and currently serves as immediate past chair.

In addition, Maun-Smith has been an active proponent of Grange’s diversity, equity and inclusion initiatives, serving on the DE&I advisory council and recently guiding the team in developing an enterprise-wide DE&I strategy. She also currently serves as the executive co-sponsor of the Pride associate resource group, which strives to promote a safe, friendly, and rewarding work environment for all company associates.

“Carrie has played a significant role in helping us build a strong culture of diversity and philanthropy,” said Doreen DeLaney Crawley, Grange Insurance Chief Operations Officer. “Her caring leadership style and passion for doing the right thing both inside Grange and within the communities we serve makes her a natural fit for this role.

“Grange is committed to fostering a diverse and inclusive environment for our associates and the communities where we live and work,” said John Ammendola, Grange Insurance President and CEO. “I am excited for all that Carrie will bring to this role as she continues the team’s good work.
