After the Storm

"working Hard To Become A More Connected Company"

Good morning. And Happy New Year you all! It is an honor to join you at this forum ... and I'm privileged to be here representing my more than 28,000 teammates at The Hartford.

We are very proud to be the third largest private employer in the state.

The past four months have been a great adventure for my family and me.

Next weekend will be our first in our new Connecticut home after moving here from North Carolina and before that California where we've lived for most of our lives.

I already feel right at home. Growing up I may have been the only kid in Southern California who could spell Yastrzemski ... falling in love with the Red Sox in 1967, Yaz's triple crown year.

I know I probably just alienated about half of the audience ... especially you Yankees fans. But to put more fuel on the fire, my two younger sons are very excited to be living closer to their hero Tom Brady.

Together, we're eager to plant our roots here in Connecticut.
