McInerney has a long history in financial services businesses, previously holding senior leadership positions at both ING Groep and Aetna Financial Services.

At Aetna for more than 20 years prior to ING, McInerney last served as president of Aetna Financial Services. He was responsible for Aetna's market-leading retirement services, life insurance and annuities, and investment management businesses. As vice president of strategy, he was deeply involved in the transformation of Aetna through the sale of its Property and Casualty business and subsequent acquisition of U.S. Healthcare.

McInerney graduated with honors from Colgate University in 1978 with a BA in Economics and received an MBA with a concentration in Finance and Investments from the Tuck School of Business at Dartmouth in 1982. For many years, he has been active with the American Council of Life Insurers and the Financial Services Roundtable, serving on each association's board and CEO committee.  

"We are very pleased to have someone with Tom McInerney's breadth of experience and record of achievement step into this role at Genworth," said Riepe.  "With his extensive expertise in insurance and investment management, exposure to the global financial services markets, and proven track record of execution, Tom will provide strong leadership at this important time for the company as we continue towards our goal of rebuilding value for our shareholders and other stakeholders."

"I'm honored to join Genworth," said McInerney, "and looking forward to working with its talented team of senior leaders and employees. It is clear that everyone at Genworth is focused on sustaining its reputation for delivering high quality products and service to its clients and distribution partners."

Speaking on behalf of Genworth's board of directors, Riepe said, "We thank Marty Klein for his achievements as our acting CEO and appreciate his contributions since his appointment earlier this year.  We look forward to continuing to work with him as he reassumes his full-time role as Genworth's chief financial officer. We are also grateful to Pat Kelleher and Kevin Schneider for their leadership of our two major business units during this transition. They have made great strides during a challenging period in strengthening the foundations of our Life Insurance, Long Term Care Insurance and Global Mortgage Insurance businesses.  Under Marty, Pat, and Kevin's leadership, we have made significant progress developing and executing a strategic plan to build shareholder value."
