Date:4/14/2009

Leader of Georgia-Based Insurance Giant Appears on Best CEOs List for Fourth Time

COLUMBUS, Ga., April 14 /PRNewswire/ -- Aflac Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Dan Amos has been named America's Best CEO for the insurance/life category in 2009 by Institutional Investor magazine. It is the fourth time Amos has appeared on the prestigious list of America's Best CEOs.

To compile their list, Institutional Investor surveyed portfolio managers, analysts and other investment professionals, asking them to name the best U.S. CEOs in the sectors in which they invest. The top scoring CEOs in each sector were named to the prestigious list.

"Dan Amos being named America's Best CEO in the insurance/life category is a tremendous honor for Dan, Aflac and our shareholders," said Ken Janke Jr., SVP of Investor Relations. "Reflecting Dan's vision and leadership, Aflac has produced an enviable track record of growth during his lengthy tenure as the company's CEO. At the same time, he has managed Aflac with an unwavering commitment to transparency and responsiveness to the company's owners. This special recognition is very well deserved."

Under Amos's leadership, Aflac has become the number one provider of guaranteed-renewable insurance in the United States and the top insurance company in terms of policies in effect in Japan. He also is responsible for introducing the now iconic Aflac Duck to consumers in America and Japan.

In May 2008, Aflac became the first public company in the United States to conduct a shareholder vote on executive pay, commonly known as "Say on Pay." Amos is well known for his pay-for-performance management philosophy and has been recognized for his efforts to demonstrate his commitment to shareholders, such as giving up his $2.8 million bonus and forgoing the "golden parachute" components in his employment contract.
