Cobb said: "We have a solid foundation and I look forward to continuing our efforts to grow demand, accelerate our digital transformation, advance the customer experience, and strengthen our business processes. I am confident that the Frontdoor team is making the right decisions to address the current macroeconomic headwinds and that we will emerge stronger because of the improvements we are making today."

In connection with Cobb's assumption of both the Chairman and CEO roles, the independent directors have elected Brian McAndrews to serve as the Board's lead independent director.
