David Cohen joins Symetra from Sentinel Investments where he was senior vice president, Investment Strategy Group, responsible for sales support to the registered investment adviser channel nationwide. He previously held sales positions with J.P. Morgan Fleming Asset Management, State Street Research and Hartford Life Distributors. He graduated from Ithaca College with a bachelor’s degree and holds FINRA Series 7 and 65 licenses. Based in Philadelphia, Cohen is Symetra’s senior investment specialist for Pennsylvania and West Virginia.

Andrew Olig most recently was regional marketing director at Hartford Mutual Funds, where he distinguished himself as a leading wholesaler and served on the Hartford Mutual Funds Advisory Board. Prior to his eight years at The Hartford, Olig worked at Putnam Investments as an internal wholesaler and regional sales associate. He received a bachelor’s degree from Central College in Iowa and holds FINRA Series 6, 7 and 63 licenses. Based in Boston, Olig is Symetra’s senior investment specialist for the New England area.

Ken Terranova brings to Symetra extensive investment product sales experience from his work at Prudential, State Street Global Advisors and most recently at Tocqueville Asset Management. At Tocqueville, he served as director of Intermediary Sales and worked closely with registered investment advisers, wirehouses, retirement platform providers and key account partners. He earned a bachelor’s degree at Rutgers University and holds FINRA Series 7 and 63 licenses. He also has the following certifications: CIMA ®, AIF ®, CMFC ® and AAMS ®. Based in northern New Jersey, Terranova is Symetra’s senior investment specialist for the Greater New York market.

“We are assembling a veteran team of sales professionals who understand the advisory marketplace and how our True VA solution can help advisers create a guaranteed lifetime income stream for their clients,” said Dan Guilbert, executive vice president of Symetra’s Retirement Division. “With the additions of David, Andrew and Ken, we look forward to securing more selling agreements and ramping up our sales efforts.”
