New York — The Guardian Life Insurance Company of America (Guardian) recently announced it has hired insurance industry veteran Deanna Mulligan as EVP in charge of its Individual Life and Disability business. She will be responsible for developing and leading Guardian's product and business strategy to drive the company's continued growth in individual life and individual disability products and markets.

Among Mulligan's responsibilities will be oversight of Guardian's Berkshire Life Insurance Company of America subsidiary, a U.S.-based disability provider. She will report to K. Rone Baldwin, Guardian's COO.

"Guardian is pleased to have in such a key leadership role an executive with the tremendous industry track record that Deanna has," says Baldwin. "Her experience over the past 20 years in product management and development, strategic planning and operations will be valuable as she crafts the vision and business mission for this important business." 

Adds Dennis Manning, Guardian's CEO, "Deanna is a highly regarded insurance industry professional with a notable record of successes. We look forward to her contributions to Guardian's continued growth."

Mulligan joins Guardian after having run her own consulting firm, advising insurance companies of strategic and operational issues. Before that, she was SVP in charge of the Life and Annuity business for New York Life, a company at which she previously held professional roles earlier in her 23 year career. Mulligan also spent several years with AXA Financial Inc., where she held a number of senior positions including EVP of the company's market and product development group.
