WINDSOR, Conn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Voya Financial, Inc. (NYSE: VOYA), announced today that through a competitive bid process earlier this year, its Retirement business was selected to serve as the new recordkeeper for the Gwinnett County, Georgia, Defined Contribution and Deferred Compensation Plans.
