Arbella Promotes Ellen Mann to Assistant Vice President of Human Resources
The Arbella Insurance Group is pleased to announce the appointment of Ellen Mann as assistant vice president of human resources. Reporting to Gayle O’Connell, executive vice president, Mann will oversee Arbella’s human resources strategy, including talent recruiting and retention, as well as strengthening company culture.
“We are thrilled to elevate Ellen into this role,” said O’Connell. “For over 10 years Ellen has been dedicated to fostering Arbella’s hardworking, collaborative and charitable culture. She has played a critical role in helping Arbella achieve recognition for nine consecutive years as a Best Place to Work Company by the Boston Business Journal. It has been a pleasure to watch her grow and take on new responsibilities, while building strong relationships with all levels of employees along the way.”
Mann, whose human resources experience spans more than 25 years, began her career at Putnam Investments and has brought extensive knowledge and an informed perspective to Arbella. Since joining in March 2007 as Senior Human Resources Business Partner, she quickly took on increasing levels of responsibility. By 2014, she advanced to Director of Human Resources making significant contributions to Arbella’s human capital strategy.
Ellen’s promotion is in recognition of her outstanding performance and greatly expanded responsibilities within her role. A Milton native, she graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Business from Saint Anselm College in New Hampshire.
