The Hartford Financial Services Group on Tuesday, July 27, announced that Sharon Ritchey had been named executive vice president of retirement plans.
Ritchey will oversee all aspects of the firm's employer-sponsored retirement plans business, covering the corporate, public, and education markets. The Hartford had approximately $46.5 billion in retirement plan assets under management (AUM) as of March 31, 2010.

David N. Levenson, president of The Hartford's Wealth Management Division, said of Ritchey in the news release, "I am confident that, under her leadership, this business will grow from our market leadership position as we continue to make investments in our service, product and distribution platform."
