Harleysville Names CIO

Former OneBeacon exec Arne Herenstein takes over the post.

Harleysville Group (Harleysville, Pa.) has appointed Arne Herenstein SVP and CIO.

Herenstein will direct the company’s ongoing information technology strategy, integration and development efforts, the company says, reporting to president and CEO Michael Browne.

“During the past five years, the accomplishments of our talented IT professionals have resulted in many accolades for our organization because of the way they’ve enhanced our ability to deliver excellent service and offer greater ease of doing business for our policyholders and agents,” Browne said in a statement. “I’m confident that Arne’s 35 years of industry experience and his broad IT expertise will prove invaluable as we continue to build upon these enhancements and work to advance our position as a technology leader in the property/casualty insurance industry.”

Herenstein had been SVP of IT for OneBeacon and has held IT leadership roles at CIGNA, PriceWaterhouseCoopers and Royal Insurance. He replaces Jon Griggs, who had been acting CIO for just under a year following the departure of Akhil Tripathi for Unirisx.
