Culture & Values










At American National, our culture is our foundation. Back in 1905 when the company was founded, the goal was to create an organization so fundamentally solid that it would still be in operation 500 years in the future. Today we stand strong and prosperous and excited about what tomorrow brings. That’s not just because of a strong corporate charter – it’s as much the result of a corporate culture that embraces the talents of each of our employees and focuses those talents on doing what it takes to exceed our client’s needs.

We place our values “FIRST” in all we do.

Our corporate values define everything important to us – Financial security, Integrity, Respect, Service and Teamwork. This isn’t just a group of words, it’s a focus and a feeling embedded deep within our DNA.

This focus drives our culture and creates an environment where each employee is challenged, supported, and rewarded. But we’re not just about hard work.

We want employees to enjoy coming to work, to be part of an organization where people care about you, and to be in a place where you can do your best work while you learn and grow.

Embrace ACE!

Agility, Collaboration, and Engagement. ACE. It’s what we strive for and it’s what keeps us ahead of the game. ACE is the driver of decisions, actions, and ultimately the overall performance of American National. If you can look at an opportunity from a slightly different perspective, if you’re better when you share and develop ideas with others, and if you want to be a part of something that makes you feel good, you’re already embracing ACE!

Don’t just take our word for it. Read what some of our employees have to say about American National:
