Symetra appointed Mindi Work to senior vice president, chief of strategy, a new role for the organization. Ms. Work will lead the company’s corporate strategic planning process, working closely with members of the Symetra Leadership Team. She is based at Symetra's Bellevue headquarters.
“Symetra is intensely focused on realizing our vision to empower customers and partners by delivering the products, services and tools they’re looking for in a rapidly evolving world,” said Margaret Meister, president and CEO of Symetra Financial Corporation. “This requires a deliberate, systematic approach to developing and executing our business strategy. The chief of strategy role will be a tremendous resource for seeing across our enterprise and driving a more holistic and effective strategic planning process. Mindi’s demonstrated leadership, business acumen, company insight and collaborative approach uniquely qualify her for this critical role.”
Since joining Symetra in 2006 from Ernst & Young, Mindi has played a key part in several significant corporate initiatives, including the articulation of Symetra’s long-term vision and strategic plan. As VP of Finance, she led Symetra’s SEC reporting team during the company’s initial public offering in 2010 and was involved in the accounting for Symetra’s 2016 acquisition by Sumitomo Life.
