Quincy Krosby was named chief marketing strategist at Shelton, Conn.-based Prudential Annuities, the domestic annuity business of Prudential Financial Inc., Newark, N.J.
Ms. Krosby had been chief investment officer at The Hartford (Conn.) Financial Services Group.
In her newly created position, Ms. Krosby will share her perspectives on the financial markets and the economy with clients, financial professionals and individual investors. She will report to Timothy Cronin, head of investment management for Prudential Annuities.
Ms. Krosby is among the most recent departures from The Hartford following the exit of chief executive officer Ramani Ayer last week and the departure of chief operating officer Thomas Marra in February.
Hartford is experiencing a “meaningful management vacuum,” New York-based Citigroup analyst Joshua Shanker wrote in a recent research note.
The revolving door in the C-suite at The Hartford was one of the reasons the analyst cited when he downgraded the firm's stock to “hold” from “buy” on Tuesday.
A call to The Hartford seeking comment was not immediately returned.
