The Sacramento Bee published a press release from John Hancock Financial Services introducing their new President of Annuities, John G. Vrysen. He starts his position immediately and will be in charge of all aspects of John Hancock’s annuity business. This includes variable annuities, fixed annuities, structured settlements, immediate annuity products, and other fixed products. His boss is the President of U.S. Wealth Management, Hugh McHaffie. Mr. Vrysen recently merged many of the company’s life insurance subsidiaries to increase company efficiency.
John Hancock’s President of Financial Services says that Mr. Vrysen has a plethora of both leadership experience and experience in their Variable and Fixed Annuities business. Since 2008, he was the head of Strategic Initiatives, a position that will now be held by the previous President of Annuities, Marc Costantini. Mr. Vrysen has worked for Manulife and John Hancock for more than three decades as the variable annuities’ chief actuary, the CFO of US Operations, the fixed annuities general manager, the COO of Wood Logan, and the COO for John Hancock Funds.
