The company also offers income planning arrangements in the form of permanent life insurance policies and is a major financial services player in Canada and Asia.

DeCamillo’s role means she could have a major influence on shaping the company’s retirement advisory services and income planning strategies around the world.

She said in a comment, included in the announcement of her new role, that she hopes to work with Manulife teams to accelerate the development of retirement planning solutions for each market the company serves.

She served as chair of the board of directors of LL Global’s Secure Retirement Institute and a member of the board of directors of the Spark Institute. She has also served on the board of the Employee Benefits Research Institute.

She holds a bachelor’s degree from Michigan State University and holds the professional designation of Certified Retirement Planning Consultant.
