MetLife has announced that Patrik Ringstroem will join the company in July as chief strategy officer, reporting to President and CEO Michel Khalaf. Ringstroem will join MetLife from JPMorgan Chase & Co., where he was head of corporate strategy.

Ringstroem will lead the team responsible for MetLife’s global strategy to help drive top- and bottom-line financial performance. He succeeds Rebecca Tadikonda, now head of strategic growth markets for the company’s Asia region.

“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,” Khalaf said. “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.”
