The Hartford has announced that Doug Elliot will retire as president after more than 11 years with the company.
Elliot spoke about his time at The Hartford, stating, “I am honoured to have had the opportunity to work for this iconic and trusted brand and proud to be a part of The Hartford’s esteemed history. Today, we have the right mix of talent, suite of products and capabilities to succeed.”
“I have great confidence in the deep experience of The Hartford’s leaders and look forward to seeing them continue to compete and win in the marketplace.”
Elliot oversaw the integration of The Navigators Group, Inc., a global specialty underwriter, after The Hartford acquired it in 2019.
The acquisition led to the creation of two distinct multi-billion-dollar, market-facing businesses, Middle & Large Commercial and Global Specialty, which offer specialized solutions to help clients manage risk.
The Hartford’s Chairman and CEO, Christopher Swift, commented on Elliot’s retirement, saying, “Doug was instrumental in expanding the company’s suite of products, developing industry-specific verticals within our property-casualty business and elevating our underwriting excellence.”
“We sincerely thank Doug for his strong leadership and steadfast determination in transforming The Hartford over the past decade. The company is well positioned for profitable growth in the years ahead as we build on our momentum to best serve all stakeholders.”
Before joining The Hartford in 2011, Elliot served as CEO of Hartford Steam Boiler after a distinguished career in the insurance industry.
The Hartford plans to realign its leadership structure in preparation for Elliot’s retirement, which is set for December 31st this year.
