Voya Financial has appointed C. Landon Cobb as chief accounting officer and controller, effective Nov. 1, 2015. Cobb, who has more than 20 years of accounting experience in the insurance and financial services industries, will report to Chief Financial Officer Ewout Steenbergen.
Cobb succeeds Joseph Horan, who had served in the role on an interim basis since August 2015 in connection with Voya's previous chief accounting officer and controller, Steven Pierson, becoming chief auditor that same month. Horan will continue to serve in his prior role as deputy controller.
Cobb joins Voya from Fidelity & Guaranty Life, where he served as chief accounting officer since 2014. Previously, Cobb served as CFO of Medcost, a benefits solutions company. He also served in several roles during an eight-year tenure with Lincoln Financial Group, ultimately becoming vice president and corporate controller. At Lincoln, Cobb led a staff of 75 across three locations and had responsibility for accounting, financial reporting and analysis, expense budget, sales reporting, and new accounting implementation. He also oversaw a number of integration and process improvement efforts as well as several financial transformation initiatives, including the introduction of a new financial reporting platform.
