Prudential hires new CIO from Freddie Mac

Stacey Goodman will join Prudential as the life insurer's new EVP and CIO starting July 15th.

With plans to focus on customer experience in leading Prudential's IT organization, Goodman will report to Robert Falzon. She comes to Prudential from Freddie Mac, where she served as CIO as well. Before that appointment, she was chief information and operations officer at CIT, with focus on the build-out of digital platforms that grew deposits three-fold from 2012 to 2016.

"I look forward to Stacey’s contribution in bringing technology to the center of our engagement with our employees, customers and distribution partners,” shared Faizon, Prudential vice chair.

Last December, Prudential announced the retirement of Barbara Koster, who held the CIO position for 23 years.

“Technology is a critical advantage, and Stacey is a purpose-driven leader and experienced technologist who has successfully guided complex, global companies through transformation to become leaders in their fields,” said Falzon. “Her ability to unlock business value, realize better outcomes for customers and streamline operations—while also accelerating growth—will support a differentiated capability for Prudential.”
