  • Lincoln Financial Group Appoints Brian Kroll as EVP, Head of Retail Life and Annuity Solutions

    May 21, 2024 by Lincoln Financial Group

    RADNOR, Pa.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Lincoln Financial Group (NYSE: LNC) today announced that Brian Kroll will be appointed Executive Vice President, Head of Retail Life and Annuity Solutions, effective May 16, 2024. Kroll will report to Chairman, President and CEO Ellen Cooper and will be a member of the company’s Senior Management Committee. He will be responsible for all aspects of the company’s Life Insurance and Annuity businesses, including product manufacturing, underwriting, new business, inforce operations and strategic planning.

    “In our at-scale Life and Annuity businesses, we continue to focus on increasing profitable growth as we realign our product mix to achieve more stable cash flows and higher risk-adjusted returns,” said Cooper. “Brian has a proven track record in our industry and here at Lincoln, and his deep expertise and collaborative leadership style will add tremendous value as we take our core competitive advantages in product manufacturing and our differentiated customer service to the next level. As an industry veteran, Brian has been serving as an advisor to our senior management team as we have evolved our strategies in these two businesses, and we’re thrilled that he will officially rejoin the Lincoln team as we shift into execution.”

    Kroll has more than 30 years of industry experience. Previously, he was at Lincoln for 18 years in various leadership roles, most recently leading the Annuity business until 2022. During his time at the company, Kroll had a track record of developing products with strong customer value propositions that delivered high risk-adjusted returns under varying market conditions. He spearheaded the launch of Lincoln’s registered index-linked annuity (RILA) product category and expanded its fixed indexed annuity offerings, and throughout his tenure, he served as a critical strategic partner to Lincoln’s Distribution organization.

    Prior to Lincoln, Kroll held senior product management and actuarial roles across both life insurance and annuities at several large insurance companies, including MetLife, Manulife and SunLife. He has served on executive committees and advisory boards for the ACLI and LIMRA, as well as on the Corporate Advisory Council of the International Association of Black Actuaries. Additionally, in his past tenure at Lincoln, he was an executive sponsor of the company’s Latino Business Resource Group.

    “I’m excited to return to this great organization to drive execution of the strategic realignment of Lincoln’s Life and Annuity businesses,” said Kroll. “I look forward to partnering with the leadership team as we focus on growing profitably across a balanced set of products with strong customer value propositions, which also meet the profitable growth objectives that support the company’s long-term value creation.”

    The distribution of Lincoln’s Retail Life and Annuity Solutions products continues to be led by John Kennedy, EVP, Chief Distribution and Brand Officer, who reports directly to Ellen Cooper, reflecting the strategic importance of the role. Kennedy will partner closely with Kroll as he joins the organization.

    Matt Grove, EVP was previously responsible for Lincoln’s wealth management and insurance solutions businesses. Grove will serve as an advisor for a period of time to ensure a smooth transition following the May 6, 2024 close of Lincoln’s wealth management transaction with Osaic, Inc.
