(MRM), naming Michael McLean as chairman of the board and Thomas Doran as president. MRM, a wholly owned subsidiary of Symetra, is a managing general underwriting and consulting firm that specializes in medical stop-loss insurance.

McLean joined MRM as executive vice president and chief operating officer in 1988. He previously worked at The Hartford Life Insurance Company and The Travelers.
