  • Jayson Bronchetti will be Lincoln's new chief investment officer.
  • Wink named Victoria Grossman president.
  • Centene has hired an executive to run its commercial health insurance business in California.

Lincoln Financial Group has named an executive with accounting and investment management experience to help shape its future.

The Radnor, Pennsylvania-based insurer chose Chris Neczypor to be its chief strategy officer.

Neczypor has been head of investment risk and strategy at the company since 2018. He has been overseeing the company’s alternative investments and structured credit investments as well as overall investment strategy.

Neczypor started out as a senior associate at PricewaterhouseCoopers. He later handled bank and insurance research for Goldman Sachs, then served as a portfolio manager at Emrys Partners and Kingdom Capital.

He has a bachelor’s degree from Lehigh University and holds the certified public accountant professional designation.

Lincoln announced in August that Ellen Cooper, the company’s chief investment officer, will succeed Dennis Glass as the president and CFO in May 2022, following the company’s annual meeting.

Cooper said in a comment, included in the executive change news announcement, that she picked Neczypor for his position partly because of his experience both with insurance and with asset management organizations.

Dennis Glass said in a comment of his own that he’s working with Cooper on leadership transition efforts.

Lincoln also has named Jayson Bronchetti to be chief investment officer.

Bronchetti has been head of corporate fixed income for Lincoln Financial and is the president and chairman of Lincoln’s mutual fund program.

He began working for Lincoln in 2013 as portfolio manager of alternative investments and private debt strategies for the general account.

Earlier in his career, Bronchetti was executive director of debt capital markets for JPMorgan in New York.

Bronchetti has a bachelor’s degree from Miami University in Ohio. He holds the chartered alternative investment analyst and chartered financial analyst professional designations.
