Symetra Life Insurance Company named Daniel R. Guilbert as president of its Individual Life and Retirement Divisions. Headquartered in Bellevue, Symetra is a national provider of employee benefits, annuities and life insurance.

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.

Mr. Guilbert has helped build Symetra into a fixed indexed annuity leader since joining the company in 2010, simultaneously guiding an expansion and diversification of the company’s retirement product portfolio to reach new markets and new customers. Under his leadership, the Retirement Division achieved its first billion dollar sales quarter and Symetra products are now available in every major bank in the United States.

He has worked closely with the ILD leadership team to prioritize systems and processes modernizations to facilitate the division’s continued expansion in the individual life space.
