Liam McGee ‘76, a former chairman of USD’s board of trustees, was recently named chairman and chief executive officer of The Hartford, an insurance-based financial services company.
McGee, 55, replaces Ramani Ayer, who retires Nov. 1. McGee came to The Hartford after 19 years with Bank of America. He has been in the banking business more than 30 years and was president of the Consumer and Small Business Bank for Bank of America before accepting his new position.
... McGee said, “Ethics, integrity and values are more important than ever. It’s right or it’s wrong. That is what our parents taught us. If it’s a gray area, it’s probably wrong.”
He gained additional life lessons while obtaining a biology degree at USD in 1976. He was a member of the Toreros’ first baseball team to play its games at Cunningham Field, wrote for The Vista newspaper, was active in student government and was a resident adviser for two years. “There were a lot of good times, some very fond memories of USD,” he said.
