Vince Bodnar, one of the top long term care actuaries in the industry, will join Genworth as senior vice president of Product Management with overall responsibility for the design, development and management of Genworth’s life, long term care and annuity product portfolios.
Larry Nisenson joins Genworth as senior vice president, Chief Commercial Officer. He will be responsible for refining USLI’s commercial vision, including distribution and product marketing, as well as developing strategic and tactical plans to grow the business.
“I am thrilled to have two very accomplished industry leaders join the team as we focus on developing and distributing the next generation of insurance products geared to help Americans address the financial challenges of aging,” said David O’Leary, president and CEO of Genworth’s U.S. Life Insurance division. “Vince and Larry share our belief that aging and the issues that come with growing older don’t just affect one person; they affect all of us.
