The Hanover announced the passing of its CFO, David B. Greenfield
Greenfield joined The Hanover in 2010 and was named executive vice president and chief financial officer in 2011. Prior to joining The Hanover, he served as executive vice president and chief financial officer of AXIS Capital Holdings Limited, a multi-national, publicly-traded insurer based in Bermuda. Previously, he worked at KPMG LLP for 22 years, rising to senior partner of the firm’s financial services practice, global sector leader of the firm’s insurance practice, and a member of its global financial services leadership team.
“We are deeply saddened by David’s passing,” said Frederick H. Eppinger, president and chief executive officer at The Hanover. “David was a loving husband and father, a leader, a colleague, a tireless mentor, and a friend. He made an indelible mark on our company. He will be remembered as a professional with great passion and commitment, and as someone who made an important difference during his time with us. Our hearts go out to his family.”
The Hanover’s board of directors has appointed Eppinger to serve as acting chief financial officer and Warren Barnes, vice president and corporate controller, to serve as acting principal accounting officer.
“During his tenure, David assembled an extremely knowledgeable and experienced team of finance professionals. We are confident they will see us through this transition,” Eppinger concluded.
