Symetra Life Insurance Company says it wants to “expand its retirement distribution channels’ beyond its current bank, independent broker-dealer and wirehouse relationships.
The Bellevue, Washington-based company has named Rich LaVoice to be executive vice president for retirement distribution strategy.
The company, which is a unit of Sumitomo Life of Japan, has also named Wes Severin to be senior vice president for retirement distribution, and Andrew Ferrell to be vice president and national sales manager.
LaVoice previously was executive vice president for sales and distribution. He has a bachelor’s degree from the University of Massachusetts at Amherst.
