O'Donnel Receives Prestigious American Award From Lincoln Financial Group

PHILADELPHIA, August 5, 2010 — Lincoln Financial Network, the retail distribution division of Lincoln Financial Group (NYSE:LNC), today announced that Mike O'Donnel, principal of Alliant Insurance Services of Houston Texas, has received its prestigious American Award.

The award has been presented annually since 2003 to a Lincoln Financial Network-affiliated advisor who combines business performance excellence, outstanding community service and a commitment to family. The award was presented by Bill Seawell, senior vice president, GA and ABGA Distribution for Lincoln Financial.

"Mike is an accomplished professional who has a seemingly limitless capacity to give back to his community and the financial services industry," said Bob Dineen, president and chief executive officer of Lincoln Financial Network. "Mike is the exemplar professional committed to sharing his expertise with others, and fostering a tradition of excellence. More importantly, he is a dedicated family man and wholeheartedly strives to improve the lives of those around him."

O'Donnel has been affiliated with Lincoln Financial Network for nearly 20 years. He is a Platinum-level member of the PREMIER PARTNERS® program, a group of some of the company's most successful financial services professionals. In addition, he was the 2009 Advisor of the Year for Lincoln Financial Network, and leading general agent for 2009 life production in the General Agency channel.

O'Donnel is active with several community organizations in and around the Houston area, including the Second Baptist Church of Houston and its Angels of Light Ministry program, which assists needy families throughout the holidays. In addition, he is a board member of the World Health and Golf Association which sponsors charitable golf events to benefit Medical Bridges. Medical Bridges recovers medical surplus that would otherwise be discarded and redistributes it to hospitals, clinics and healthcare providers in less fortunate countries. He is also active with the Harris County Immunization Registry, which provides to Houston area health care providers complete records of immunizations of children.
