MetLife (New York) has reorganized its business, and as a result its recently hired global technology head, Marty Lippert, will also head up operations.
Following the company's acquisition of Alico, MetLife has decided to reorganize into three broad geographic regions, each with its own president: the America, EMEA, and Asia. In addition, the company is creating a global employee benefits business unit, headed by EVP Maria Morris. With her taking over this unit, Lippert will take over her previous responsibilities as head of operations.
Lippert was named EVP and head of global technology for MetLife in August. His new title is head of global technology and operations.
With MetLife's U.S. division being folded into the Americas division, U.S. Business president William Mullaney will retire. William Wheeler, the company's former CFO, will head the Americas unit.
Michel Khalaf, who joined MetLife through the Alico acquisition, will run EMEA. The Asia division is looking for a president, but will be managed on an interim basis by president, chairman and CEO Steven Kandarian. MetLife is also searching for a full-time CFO to replace Wheeler.
