Voya Expands Retirement Business

Michael De Feo has been hired as head of retirement and investment-only business by Voya Investment Management. He will report to Jake Tuzzahead of intermediary distribution for Voya Investment Management.

"Mike will oversee, and be responsible for, all aspects of our partnership with Voya's retirement business, third-party defined contribution investment only (DCIO) efforts, sub-advisory, and working with our institutional team to help grow our DCIO business," says Tuzza. "Under Mike's guidance, we will strengthen our focus on retirement, centralize our efforts in support of defined contribution and, together with our affiliates, accelerate our desire to be recognized as the retirement asset manager of choice."

Before joining Voya, De Feo worked with Nuveen Investments. He served as managing director for DCIO, strategic alliances and sub-advised business. He was responsible for managing marketing, sales and key account functions.

"Mike has a long track record of success in the defined contribution (DC) investment arena—building strong relationships with key record-keepers and broker-dealers, and using value-add programs to help grow sales and assets under management," says Tuzza.

De Feo earned a bachelor’s degree in history from Roanoke College.
