Symetra Names Daniel Guilbert as President, Individual Life and Retirement Divisions

BELLEVUE, Wash. — Symetra Life Insurance Company today named Daniel R. Guilbert as president of its Individual Life and Retirement Divisions.
“Leading Symetra is very much a team effort. Dan’s new title recognizes the significant role he plays in developing Symetra’s long-term strategic plans and his ongoing contributions to the successful execution of our strategy,” said Margaret Meister, president and chief executive officer of Symetra Financial Corporation.
