The Hartford Financial Services Group, Inc. announced that it has named John Wilcox, 44, as Senior Vice President, Personal Lines, effective immediately.
Wilcox joined The Hartford in October 2008 and has taken on increasing levels of responsibility, most recently serving as the Senior Vice President of Strategic Business Development. Over the past several months, Wilcox worked closely with the Office of the Chairman in assessing the strategic assets of The Hartford and setting out the direction of the company.
"John has demonstrated his superior leadership skills and deep business acumen in driving a number of strategic initiatives during this unprecedented time in our company," said Jonathan Bennett, Executive Vice President, Personal and Small Business Insurance. "I'm excited to bring John's industry experience and outstanding business insights to continue Personal Lines' growth as a leader in consumer risk protection."
Wilcox will report to Bennett until the head of the recently announced Consumer Markets organization is identified.
Prior to joining The Hartford, Wilcox worked as a partner at McKinsey & Company where he provided consulting services to the insurance industry. Additionally, he has held a variety of roles at Hyperion Capital Management and Marsh & McLennan. Wilcox holds an M.B.A. from the University of Chicago and a B.A. from Dartmouth College.
