    March 15, 2021 by Lincoln Financial Group

    RADNOR, Pa.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Lincoln Financial Group (NYSE:LNC) today announced that it has appointed John Kennedy as executive vice president and president of Lincoln Financial Distributors (LFD). He will be a member of Lincoln’s Senior Management Committee and report to Lincoln president and CEO Dennis R. Glass. The company also announced that Ellen Cooper, executive vice president, chief investment officer and head of Risk, is expanding her role and has assumed responsibility for its Annuities business.

    In their new roles they succeed Will Fuller, who left Lincoln to accept a senior position with a multinational life insurance, pensions and asset management company.

    Mr. Kennedy was previously head of Retirement Solutions Distribution sales for LFD. Prior to joining Lincoln in 2009, he was national sales manager for MetLife Investors. His previous positions include senior vice president for AXA Distributors and various senior sales and marketing roles for PLANCO, a financial services subsidiary of The Hartford. Kennedy serves as the chairman of the board of the Insured Retirement Institute.

    Ms. Cooper currently serves as Lincoln’s primary investment officer and oversees the company’s $290 billion investment portfolio. In addition to investments, she is responsible for the company’s risk management and hedging program and serves as chairperson of Lincoln’s mutual fund complex.

    Separately, Lincoln announced that Lisa Buckingham, executive vice president and chief people, place and brand officer, left Lincoln to accept a senior position with a multinational, multiline insurance company. Lincoln will conduct an internal and external search for Ms. Buckingham’s replacement.

    Mr. Glass said, “We are pleased to announce John’s appointment as president of Lincoln Financial Distributors. John has deep experience in distribution and a proven track record of success at Lincoln and other leading firms in our industry. We are also excited to have Ellen assume greater responsibilities and further align our Annuities business with our risk management and investment functions. We have a very deep bench across all our businesses and are grateful to have these highly accomplished executives step seamlessly into these roles. I look forward to continuing to work with them closely as they guide Lincoln’s industry-leading distribution organization and annuity business respectively.”
