Lincoln Financial appoints new corporate secretary
Lincoln Financial Group has announced that Andrea Goodrich has joined the company as senior vice president and corporate secretary. She started on January 17 and reports directly to Kirkland Hicks, Lincoln Financial’s executive vice president and general counsel.
In her new role, Goodrich leads a corporate law team with responsibility for contracts, mergers & acquisitions, intellectual property, investment transactions, securities and tax. She replaces Charlie Brawley, who joined Campbell's Soup in 2016.
