“I’m so proud to make these announcements and welcome Lacey and Alex to their new roles on my senior leadership team,” Scott Gaul, head of Investment and Pension Solutions for Prudential Retirement, said. “Our strong focus on talent development and mobility is critical to our success as a team and it is more important than ever to have dedicated, experienced leaders in Stable Value and Structured Settlements who truly understand the peace of mind our products bring our customers during times of crisis and market volatility. As Prudential Retirement navigates the current environment with our partners, I am confident Lacey and Alex are the individuals to lead these businesses into the future.”
Prior to being promoted to head Structured Settlements in 2017, Lockward was a key member of Prudential’s Stable Value business team, responsible for new business, maintaining an in-force book of business and implementing new products in new markets, such as 529 plans. During her time leading Structured Settlements, she oversaw the business’s financial foundations work, which resulted in a significant transformation of strategy, product, pricing and service, and produced strong sales and profitability.
Hyten, an actuary by background, previously led Prudential Retirement’s Investment and Pension Solutions sales team, where she was responsible for pension risk transfer, medical risk transfer and stable value sales and related product innovation efforts. Hyten developed a strong understanding of the needs of institutional clients during her eight years on Prudential Retirement’s Sales team and Pension Risk Transfer New Business team.
