Christopher Swift, previously vice chairman and CFO at American Life Insurance Co. (ALICO), an operating company of American International Group (AIG) with $89 billion in assets and operations in 54 countries, will join The Hartford Financial Services Group Inc. as EVP and CFO. Effective March 1, Swift, a 27-year insurance industry veteran, will replace Lizabeth Zlatkus, who will assume the chief risk officer role at The Hartford.

"Chris's appointment is an important step on our path forward," said The Hartford's chairman, president and CEO Liam McGee. "He has held significant leadership roles in large, complex financial organizations and has a background that covers both the life and P&C industries. In addition to his strategic financial role at ALICO, Chris had a broad range of functional responsibilities, including capital management, and was instrumental in the company's repositioning. He will be an excellent addition to our leadership team. I also want to thank Liz for leading the finance and risk functions during this challenging period. Their work helped to effectively position the company for the future. I look forward to working with Liz to further strengthen the company's risk management practices."
