Voya to make its permanent metro Phoenix home in Chandler
PHOENIX – Voya Financial announced last week that it will make Chandler the permanent home for its metro Phoenix operations.
“The city of Chandler provides us with everything that we need to build a successful operation: access to a skilled workforce and talent pipeline, a business-friendly environment, and many essential resources for future growth and success,” Rodney O. Martin Jr., Voya chairman and CEO, said Friday in a press release.
Last month, the investment services firm moved into a temporary base on 52nd Street near Broadway Road in Tempe.
When the new 151,000-square-foot facility on Price Road near Germann Road is up and running, more than 1,000 people will work there.
The Tempe site will be shut down and the jobs there will be transferred to Chandler.
No projected opening date was provided.
The Fortune 500 company, which helps people plan for retirement, also has about 200 workers at a Scottsdale office that will continue to operate.
The new offices will house employees in Voya’s retirement, employee benefits and claim administration groups, plus human resources.
In November, Voya announced its plans to set up shop in Tempe until a permanent Valley home could be found.
The state lured the New York-based company with a $9.5 million tax credit and a $1 million grant.
In 2018, Forbes ranked Voya at No. 194 on its list of the world’s best employers.
