The timing of the announcement left some wondering if it was a political stunt. Ducey for his part, pushed back.
"... [N]ot only is our cost of living so much dramatically less than San Francisco and New York. It's not the fact that we pay people less. It costs less to live here. It's a better quality of life. There's more economic attractiveness. Are there any questions about Voya?"
The new office will include call center, back-office and customer support operations, as well operations for the firm's retirement, employee benefits and Individual life insurance businesses, plus support staff.
Ducey said he welcomes Voya's expansion and investment.
