HARTFORD, Conn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The Hartford has appointed Susan Spivak Bernstein as a senior Investor Relations officer, effective June 26, reporting to Sabra Purtill, treasurer and head of Investor Relations. In her role, Spivak Bernstein will assume primary responsibility for Investor Relations operations, including earnings reporting, investor communications and conferences, and senior management roadshows.
“We are pleased to welcome Susan to The Hartford and our Investor Relations team. Her significant experience as both an analyst and investor relations professional and long-standing focus on property-casualty insurance will contribute to the continued excellence of The Hartford’s Investor Relations function,” Purtill said.
Spivak Bernstein joins The Hartford with nearly 30 years of insurance-industry expertise, in both investor relations and the sell-side-analyst role. Most recently, Spivak Bernstein held investor-relations roles with Argo Group International Holdings and Alterra Capital Holdings (formerly Max Capital). Prior to transitioning to investor relations 10 years ago, Spivak Bernstein spent 20 years on the sell-side with senior roles at Wachovia Securities leading a team that covered 25 non-life insurers, at ABN Amro, and at Donaldson, Lufkin, and Jenrette.

Spivak Bernstein has a bachelor’s degree from the University of Michigan.
