If it weren't for a bad case of writer's block, Michael Bernaski might be a famous novelist right now. Instead, he's the CIO and senior vice president of property-casualty e-business and technology at The Hartford Financial Services Inc.Last year, he accepted the senior technology position at the Hartford, Conn.-based financial services firm when he "hit the wall" trying to write a murder mystery during a year-long sabbatical from the consulting world. Bernaski had left Accenture, where he had worked for 15 years, to enjoy his newborn daughter and pen his way toward the best-seller's list.
"I got writer's block about five months into it," says Bernaski. "Then, I got a call to come work for John Chu (senior vice president, property-casualty e-business and technology) at The Hartford."
