In Memoriam: Colin Govan, CLU

NAIFA regrets to announce the death of Colin Govan, CLU, formerly with AXA Equitable.

Govan was an active member of NAIFA-Virginia and was inducted into that association’s Hall of Fame in 2012. He was also a member of the Million Dollar Round Table.

“During my tenure here, Colin was instrumental in helping us modernize the NAIFA code of ethics,” noted Randy Scritchfield, CFP, LUTCF, with Montgomery Financial Group, Inc., in Damascus, Md., and Past NAIFA Officer.  “Colin touched a lot of people through the Life Underwriting Training Council, as well as through NAIFA, the MDRT, and the MDRT Foundation. He was a champion for our profession to the end and a mentor to hundreds of professionals he mentored through the LUTC program, and to others he mentored daily.”

  1. Colin was one of the real greats of our industry. He lived and breathed the benefits of life insurance.
    He was a wonderful friend to me and encouraged me throughout my career. Whenever I get a big
    head and think I am some kind of hotshot I think of Colin and realize I have someone to aspire to.
    He was a truly great man and a great friend. I will miss him and our industry will miss him. I send
    my condolences to his family and friends.
