Manulife appoints Roy Gori as president


Manulife has appointed Roy Gori, currently senior executive vice president and general manager of Manulife's Asia Division, as the company's president, effective 5 June.

Gori (pictured) will have responsibility for Manulife's global operating businesses, reporting to chief executive officer Donald Guloien.
Gori will assume leadership of Manulife's Canadian, US and investment operations, in addition to Asia. He will also be responsible for developing and executing Manulife's business strategy.
Gori, who is currently based in Hong Kong, will relocate to Toronto. The changes are subject to immigration approvals.
"Roy is an enormously capable leader, an innovator and agent of change, and is very committed to customer centricity," Guloien says. "I am simply delighted Roy is taking on this significant role, leveraging his talent, expertise and collaborative instinct across all of our businesses, and very excited about the impact he will have on Manulife's future."
"Roy's leadership and energy have had a lasting and highly positive effect on Manulife's business in Asia," says Richard DeWolfe, chairman of the board. "With this appointment, the board is confident that he will make numerous contributions across all of Manulife's operations, play a critical role in driving and executing on our strategic plan and create substantial value for our stakeholders."
"I'm excited to take on this opportunity, and to play a role in shaping Manulife's businesses around the world at a time of rapid and significant change," says Gori. "Our people, strategy and corporate purpose are aligned to help people achieve their dreams and aspirations, and to create an exceptional customer experience. We are confident that by going above and beyond for our customers, we will be able to deliver strong results and significant shareholder value."
Gori joined Manulife from Citi in early 2015, where he served as head of consumer banking, North Asia and Australia, and regional head of retail banking, Asia Pacific, which included responsibility for Citi's insurance and wealth management businesses.
