Manulife Financial Corp. has announced a change at the top at John Hancock Financial Services, the company’s Boston-based U.S. division.
Craig Bromley, a senior executive vice president and general manager of the U.S. division, has left the company, Manulife said today. The Toronto-based parent company did not immediately give an explanation for Bromley’s departure. Bromley could not be reached for comment.
Michael Doughty, the general manager of the John Hancock Insurance division, will serve as the interim general manager of the U.S. division, Manulife said.

Manulife also announced that Roy Gori will succeed Donald Guloien as its chief executive officer Oct. 1.
The Parent Company Transition
Manulife said in March that it would bring Gori, the head of the company’s Asia division, to Toronto to be president of the parent company.
At the time, Manulife said Gori would start his new job in June and report to Guloien.
The company said Bromley would report to Gori.
Gori, a Citigroup consumer banking veteran, began working for Manulife in 2015.
Bromley has been working for Manulife since 2000.
Guloien, who became Manulife’s CEO in 2009, said in a statement today that building a strong bench of succession candidates is an important responsibility for a CEO. “I am proud that an individual of Roy’s caliber will be taking the leadership of the company,” Guloien said.
