The Hartford Names Three Execs to Senior Posts

September 17, 2008

The Hartford Financial Services Group Inc. announced new appointments for three of its senior executives. Effective immediately, Dan Brown will take on the new role of senior vice president of Industry Markets; Juan Andrade will become executive vice president of sales and distribution; and Andy Pinkes will assume the position of executive vice president of claims.

Brown, who until now served as The Hartford’s head of sales and distribution, will lead a newly created business group called Industry Markets, which focuses on industries that offer opportunities for growth across the company’s business insurance segments. Brown joined The Hartford in 1989 and has served in a number of business segment and field leadership posts at the company.

Succeeding Brown as head of sales and distribution will be Andrade, who until now served as head of The Hartford’s claims organization. In his new role, Andrade will work to support 10,000 independent agents and brokers who distribute the company’s portfolio of personal and business insurance products. Prior to The Hartford, Andrade held a range of roles as a profit center manager, accountable for sales and distribution, product, pricing and claims for 15 years at AIG and Progressive.

Pinkes will succeed Andrade as head of The Hartford’s claims organization and will continue his stewardship of the company’s P&C run-off operations, a role he took on in 2005 after joining The Hartford in 2003. As COO and then president of The Hartford’s run-off operations, Pinkes and his team have helped the company manage many of the company’s most challenging issues, including asbestos, silica, environmental and complex exposures.
