Rick McKenney resigned to take up executive position with a US financial services company

Sun Life Financial (SLF), a financial services organisation offering protection and wealth accumulation products and services, has appointed Colm Freyne as interim Chief Financial Officer effective July 1, 2009.

Mr. Freyne is currently working as SLF’ Senior Vice-President and Controller. From July, the board and executive team will work with Mr. Freyne to determine the finance structure to best serve Sun Life for the longer term

Donald Stewart, Chief Executive Officer, SLF, said: “Colm is highly qualified to lead our exceptional enterprise-wide team of finance professionals, given his three decades of international financial services experience. He has been with Sun Life since 2003, having joined us from a major Canadian chartered bank. The stewardship of our finance function is in very good hands.”

The decision has been taken due to the resignation of Rick McKenney, who will be taking up an executive position with a US financial services company, the company said.
