Allstate Leadership

and the Military

A commitment to the military is built right into our foundation: Allstate was founded in 1931 by General Robert E. Wood, who developed his leadership skills in the 42nd Rainbow Division during World War I. Today, former military leaders play critical roles throughout our company, and we know that our Veteran leaders will continue to guide and shape our organization for years to come.
