Marsh & McLennan Cos. Inc. (MMC) appointed Vanessa A. Wittman as executive vice president and chief financial officer.

Wittman will report directly to MMC President and CEO Brian Duperreault. She joins MMC as an EVP on Sept. 10, and will assume her CFO duties by Oct. 15. She will succeed Matthew B. Bartley, who in June announced his plans to leave the company.

Wittman was most recently CFO and executive vice president of Adelphia Communications Corp., which she joined in 2003. At Adelphia, she served on a four-member executive team that navigated one of the most complex bankruptcy cases in U.S. history. She oversaw a staff of more than 400 and was responsible for accounting, tax and internal audit functions; operational and field finance; corporate development; and the bankruptcy and investor relations teams.

Prior to Adelphia, Wittman served as CFO of 360networks, based in Seattle. She also has held positions with Microsoft, Metricom Inc., and Morgan Stanley.
