Henrikson to Succeed Benmosche as MetLife CEO

April 28, 2005

MetLife Inc. said that its board unanimously chose C. Robert Henrikson to succeed Chairman and Chief Executive Robert H. Benmosche, who will retire next spring.

Henrikson, 57, was appointed president and chief operating officer in June. The 33-year MetLife veteran has held many executive positions, including president of the company’s U.S. insurance and financial services businesses from 2002 to 2004.

The succession will follow the company’s planned integration of Travelers Life and Annuity in December. In January, MetLife said it would acquire Travelers from Citigroup for $11.5 billion. The transaction is expected to close in the summer.
