Chattanooga-based Unum Group today announced that Kevin P. McCarthy will become chief operating officer of the company effective Jan. 1.

He will take his new job for the insurer in addition to maintaining his role as president and chief executive officer of its largest business unit, Unum US.

"Kevin has a long track record of success with our company," said Thomas R. Watjen, chief executive officer of Unum, "and this is a natural extension of his role as head of our Enterprise Operating Committee."

McCarthy was appointed earlier this year to lead the committee, which focuses on positioning Unum's businesses to capitalize on profitable growth opportunities in the market and better leverage companywide resources.
