National Life Group CIO Nimesh Mehta named to Parkland Health Foundation Board of Directors


Addison, TX - (November 29, 2023) National Life Group Senior Vice President and Chief Information Officer Nimesh Mehta has been named to the Parkland Health Foundation Board of Directors.

Mehta was appointed senior VP and CIO of National Life Group in 2018. He focuses on all aspects of technology operations to effectively align business and technology strategy with a customer centric focus.

Parkland Health Foundation is dedicated to securing substantial financial resources that advance the goals of Parkland Health. Parkland Health’s Pediatric Behavioral Health Program has been the recipient of the National Life Group Do Good Fest benefit concert since it came to the Dallas area in 2022, bringing in $70,000 last year. The Parkland program, which is dedicated to reducing stigma and increasing access to mental health support, also receives support from the National Life Group Foundation. Last year, more than 2,000 children and adolescents received behavioral health care through the program. 

"I have been blessed to spend decades in an industry I love, serving thousands of clients and Advisors over the years," Boyd said. "It has been an honor to work with our partners at National Life Group and Equity Services, Inc. For advisors seeking independence of thought, broad access to tools and strategies needed to support their clients' financial goals, and a desire to maintain ownership of their practice, I believe there is no better place to grow. We still support and believe in the entrepreneur! With a network of over 129 advisors, 242 brokers, offices throughout the country, and flagship offices in Latham, Queensbury, White Plains, Rochester, Manhattan, Independence Ohio, and Lawrence Pennsylvania, we plan to rapidly grow our team and services. We invite those interested in joining our team as advisors to know that we are here and ready for your expertise.”

“It is a privilege to serve Parkland in support of their outstanding work to expand access to care in the Dallas community,” Mehta said. “Parkland’s mission to heal aligns beautifully with National Life’s work in supporting the ever-growing needs of youth mental health and I look forward to contributing to this great cause.”

Every child seen at Parkland receives a behavioral health screening as part of their routine pediatric primary care, allowing healthcare providers to address minor problems immediately and refer to more specialized behavioral health services if needed. Parkland Behavioral Health services are now available at all 10 Parkland Pediatric Clinics across the county, in primarily underserved neighborhoods. Parkland also implemented a trauma-informed care approach that fully integrates physical and mental health care for children. 

“Nimesh is a proven enterprise leader whose deep understanding of how to develop and scale customer-centric systems aligns with Parkland Health Foundation’s commitment to harness the power of high-impact philanthropy to expand a patient-centered model of community-healthcare across Dallas County,” said Michael Horne, EdD, MPP, president and CEO, Parkland Health Foundation. “Equally impressive is Nimesh’s unwavering commitment to upholding the dignity of our community’s most vulnerable residents—a core element of Parkland Health’s mission to ‘advance wellness, relieve suffering, develop and educate.’”
