CNA chief financial officer retires; successor revealed

US commercial insurer CNA's executive vice president and chief financial officer (CFO) Craig Mense is to retire from the company on Dec. 31, 2018.

Mense will be succeeded by James Anderson, senior vice president and head of financial planning & analysis and corporate development.

Anderson joined CNA in 2012 and has been a key member of the Finance leadership team. Prior to that, he spent nearly a decade in investment banking focused on the insurance industry, ultimately as a managing director at Macquarie Capital, followed by five years of consulting at Accenture.

Mense will officially transition the CFO role to Anderson during the third quarter of 2018. Mense will remain with CNA through his retirement date.

Dino Robusto, chairman and chief executive officer, commented: "Craig joined CNA in 2004 and has served as an influential CFO to me and two of my predecessors. Craig has made countless contributions to the success of CNA and he will be missed. Craig's enduring legacy is evidenced in the financial strength of our company. His steadfast, disciplined leadership has built lasting market confidence and influenced the many employees who have learned from him."
