Manulife Executives Jacqui Allard And Sue Reibel Among Canada's Most Powerful Women

TSX/NYSE/PSE: MFC    SEHK:945

TORONTO, Dec. 3, 2013 /PRNewswire/ - Manulife Financial today announced that its executives, Jacqui Allard and Sue Reibel, have been recognized by the Women's Executive Network as two of " Canada's Most Powerful Women". The award recognizes women who are "proven achievers and strong contributors to their organization, their fields of endeavour and their communities."

Ms. Allard and Ms. Reibel were recognized in the Corporate Executive category which acknowledges excellence in management, corporate performance, community service, vision and leadership.

Jacqui Allard, Senior Vice President, Head of Operations and Chief Information Officer, Investment Division, is responsible for the global operations and information systems functions for Manulife's Investment Division. Ms. Allard also sits on the Advisory Committee of Women in Capital Markets, an organization devoted to the advancement of women in the capital markets field.

"Jacqui's exceptional intelligence, her strong leadership skills and unwavering commitment to Manulife have been invaluable to the firm," said Warren Thomson, Senior Executive Vice President and Chief Investment Officer. "In just four short years, Jacqui transformed our operations, reporting and analytics systems to become significantly more productive than our industry peers. That is just one reason she is such a highly valued and respected member of our team."

Sue Reibel, Senior Vice President, Business Development, Group Benefits and Retirement Solutions, is responsible for the teams who meet the employee benefits and retirement needs of Canadian employers and their employees. Ms. Reibel also serves as a member of the Board of Governors and Investment Oversight Committee for Wilfrid Laurier University as well as Chair of the University's Pension Committee.

"Sue's leadership skills and strong business acumen have taken Manulife's group retirement business to the number one sales position in Canada, a position we have held for three years" said Paul Rooney, Senior Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer. "Her contributions to the industry are not confined to Manulife. Sue helped revolutionize retirement savings policy in Canada and was a thought leader in the area of Pooled Registered Pension Plans (PRPPs), an issue of great importance for Canadians. In fact, under Sue's leadership, Manulife became the first company in Canada to receive federal approval to administer PRPPs."
