Foresters Financial announced on Wednesday it has appointed Bruce Hodges chief operating officer as the firm shifts its focus to its core life insurance business.

Hodges has 30 years’ experience in financial services, insurance and information technology, and has served in leadership positions at Generali, ING, Manulife Financial and Sun Life Financial, Foresters said in a release.

Hodges rounds out Foresters’ leadership team alongside other recent appointees Mendes d’Abreu, chief human resources officer; Alvin Sharma, global chief financial officer; and David Longfritz, chief marketing officer.

In April, Foresters announced it was selling its U.S. asset-management business and its U.S. broker/dealer and advisory business to focus on its mass- and middle-market life insurance business. staff
