Christopher Giovanni and Jeffrey Coutts, two leaders within Lincoln Financial Group’s corporate finance organisation, are taking on new roles.
Senior Vice President Giovanni has been named Corporate Treasurer while Coutts, who currently serves as corporate treasurer, has been appointed Chief Valuation Actuary, a newly created role.
In this expanded role, Giovanni will assume responsibility for Corporate Treasury oversight, including balance sheet management, debt and capital management, liquidity management and rating agency relationships.
In addition to these new responsibilities, Giovanni will continue to oversee Investor Relations and Strategic Planning, reporting directly to Randal Freitag, Executive Vice President, Chief Financial Officer and Head of Individual Life for Lincoln.
Coutts is Lincoln’s first Chief Valuation Actuary and will take responsibility for the executive leadership of actuarial valuation and modelling within the company.
He will continue to have responsibility for mergers and acquisitions and financial reinsurance and report directly to Freitag.
“Both Chris and Jeff are respected finance professionals who have made a significant impact at Lincoln,” said Freitag.
“I am thrilled that they are taking on expanded responsibilities, a demonstration of our strong focus on talent development. I look forward to the vision and leadership they will bring to their respective positions.”
