With more than 30 years in insurance and financial services, Boyle has held a
number of leadership positions at ManuLife Financial Corporation. Most
recently, he was president of John Hancock Financial Services Inc.—the
company's U.S. division—which included life and long term care insurance,
mutual funds and retirement plans, and its independent broker-dealer network.
Previously, Boyle was president of John Hancock's U.S. Insurance company, as
well as its U.S. Wealth Management company. He also served on the Board of

return the businesses' earnings from economic crisis levels to near
pre-recession highs. Ultimately, he created industry-leading positions in key
areas while building John Hancock's reputation and growth potential.

"We're delighted that Jim will be joining Genworth, bringing important
experience and expertise as we work to turn around our USLI Division and our
life insurance, long term care insurance, and annuities businesses," said Tom
McInerney, Genworth's president and chief executive officer. "He will work
with our USLI senior leadership team to continue to improve the profitability,
financial strength, and capital generation of the division, and help
accelerate the businesses' return to growth."
