In an important development that marks a new era of leadership for your National Notary Association, we’re pleased to announce that veteran executive Thomas A. Heymann has been named the NNA’s new President and Chief Executive Officer to expand its service, education and support programs for Notaries nationwide. Heymann, 54, brings to the Association an impressive record of success in finance, risk management and organizational development. He has more than 34 years of experience in executive management and corporate governance in challenging, service-intensive environments spanning a variety of industries, including education, retail, technology and restaurants. With his low-key, personable style, Heymann already has started reaching out to the Notary community via social media to learn as much as possible about notarization. He is committed to continuously improving the Association’s level of service, support and advocacy for NNA members and non-member customers alike, especially at a time when Notaries are facing increased pressures to protect consumers and reduce risk across all business sectors. “Because trust, integrity and confidence are among the topconcerns for today’s consumers and businesses, I expect to focus our efforts on helping Notaries and their employers meet these needs,” Heymann said. “For 55 years the NNA has served to support and improve the Notary office and it’s a privilege to be in a position to build upon that legacy.” You will see more of Tom on our social media channels, in your publications and at this year’s Conference. In the meantime, please see the recent press release to learn more about him.
