Genworth Financial says it’s naming Dan Sheehan to succeed Kelly Groh as the company’s chief financial officer.
Groh says she’s leaving to move to California, to be closer to her parents. She’s been Genworth’s CFO for five years.
Sheehan has been the Richmond, Virginia-based company’s chief investment officer since 2012.
Sheehan has a bachelor’s degree in economics from Harvard University and a master’s degree in finance from Babson College.
He holds the Chartered Financial Analyst professional designation.
Sheehan started out as an auditor for the Massachusetts Laborers Benefit Fund.
He then worked for a Wellesley Hills, Massachusetts-based arm of Sun Life Financial arm.
He began working for what is now Genworth, what was then part of General Electric, in 1997, as a risk manager for real estate investments.
In related news, Genworth is naming Brian Haendiges to become Genworth’s chief risk officer. Groh has been the interim chief risk officer since January.
Haendiges previously was senior vice president of U.S. pricing and product management at MassMutual. He oversaw pricing and profitability for MassMutual’s U.S. portfolio, including life insurance, disability, long term care, annuity and retirement products.
Haendiges has a bachelor’s degree from Worcester Polytechnic Institute. He is a Fellow of the Society of Actuaries.
