Carmel-based insurer Conseco Inc. will ask shareholders in May to approve changing the company’s name to CNO Financial Group, the company said Thursday morning.
If they agree, the company would move fairly quickly to change the name of Conseco Fieldhouse, the basketball arena in Indianapolis where the Indiana Pacers and Indiana Fever play. Conseco is paying $40 million over 20 years for arena’s naming rights.
Conseco spokesman Tony Zehnder said the company has begun talks with Pacers Sports & Entertainment about the name change. He said there’s no firm timetable for a change, but he added, “ I assume we would probably try to resolve that within the year.”
CNO Financial Group Fieldhouse. CNO Fieldhouse for short I'm sure. The zingers write themselves, CNO wins, CNO fans, CNO defense. Yes I stole that from Indy Cornrows.
