Alan Kreczko embraces challenges as GC of The Hartford

Kreczko went in-house after 25 years of government work

Proactive professionals, obsessive organizers and serial schedulers, take note: Sometimes it’s ok to not have a plan.

Take it from Alan Kreczko. In the early 1970s, the Cleveland native graduated from Boston College with a political science degree. Although no one in his family had studied law, he decided that the next logical step for him was to go to law school. So he headed to the University of Michigan Law School. “But I didn’t go with a definite plan,” he says.

Q: Were you worried that working at The Hartford would be a lot different from your previous work?

A: I had taken a couple of jobs in the government that were out of my comfort zone, but I was nonetheless nervous about learning how to operate in a company, and the fact that all of these substantive areas would be new to me.
