MetLife has announced that Patrik Ringstroem will join the company in July as Chief Strategy Officer, reporting to President and CEO Michel Khalaf.
In this role, Ringstroem will be tasked with leading the team responsible for MetLife’s global strategy to help drive top and bottom line financial performance.
He succeeds Rebecca Tadikonda, who is now Head of Strategic Growth Markets for the company’s Asia region.
Ringstroem will join MetLife from JPMorgan Chase & Co., where he currently serves as Head of Corporate Strategy.
Before joining JPMorgan Chase & Co. in 2017, he was a partner in Oliver Wyman’s financial services practice, where he advised clients on corporate strategy, operational effectiveness, and acquisitions.
Khalaf commented on the appointment: “MetLife’s strategy is essential to delivering products and services that will strengthen our customers’ financial security and well-being, and creating even greater value for our shareholders.”
“With his extensive experience advising financial services firms and as a corporate strategy leader, Patrik will play a critical role in defining the next horizon of MetLife’s strategy,” he added.
