Retirement, insurance and investment firm Voya Financial says it will open a new office in metro Phoenix and will add more than 1,000 new workers.
The planned office will add to the big 401(k) manager's existing Scottsdale office. About 200 employees in the firm's investment management business are currently based in Scottsdale.
Voya officials said Thursday at an event attended by Gov. Doug Ducey that it has found a temporary site for the new office that will open in January and is searching for a permanent location it hopes to open in mid-2020.
The new office will include call center, back-office and customer support operations, as well operations for the firm's retirement, employee benefits and Individual life insurance businesses, plus support staff.
Ducey said he welcomes Voya's expansion and investment.
