Prudential Names Strategic Solutions Managing Director

Prudential Financial hired Kathryn Sayko to be managing director for its Strategic Solutions Group.

Sayko will be responsible for building and expanding Prudential’s relationships with senior financial management at large corporations. She will report to Kevin Myers, head of the Strategic Solutions Group, and Phil Waldeck, head of Pension Risk Transfer for Prudential Retirement.

Sayko joins Prudential after 16 years at J.P. Morgan, where she most recently served as a managing director, responsible for providing investment-banking services to clients across a range of industries. She holds an MBA from New York University.  

“Kathy’s financial services experience gives her the ability to understand the pressures faced by companies and their financial officers,” said Myers. “We’ve been focused on a core group of clients, and with Kathy’s knowledge of the needs facing large companies across all industries, we can expand our relationships and offer the kind of expertise that will help those companies solve the challenges of risk management, pension funding and employee benefits costs.”
