The Hartford Promotes 2 Key Execs

February 25, 2008

The Hartford Financial Services Group Inc. has promoted two senior execs to corporate leadership positions.

Lizabeth H. Zlatkus, 49, has been named executive vice president and chief financial officer of The Hartford, replacing CFO David M. Johnson, who earlier this year announced plans to leave the company.

In her new role, she will oversee corporate strategy, finance, capital and enterprise risk management, investor relations, real estate, and corporate information systems functions. Zlatkus serves currently as the co-chief operating officer – with John C. Walters — of The Hartford’s life operations and president of International Wealth Management and Group Benefits.

Meanwhile, Walters, 46, has been named president and chief operating officer of the The Hartford’s life operations.

Walters joined The Hartford in 2000 from First Union Securities, the brokerage subsidiary of First Union Corp. In 2006, he became president of The Hartford’s U.S. Wealth Management division, and was named co-chief operating officer of life operations last year.

Both promotions are effective May 1.
