Boston Private Financial Holdings in Boston has added a former insurance executive to its board.

The $6.9 billion-asset Boston Private said in a press release Monday that Lizabeth Zlatkus had become a director. Zlatkus previously spent 28 years with Hartford Financial Services, including stints as chief financial officer, chief risk officer and president of Hartford Life's international wealth management and group benefits divisions.

Zlatkus "brings extensive experience in the financial services arena where she has played pivotal roles in regulation and governance, and has deep experience in finance and risk management matters," Stephen Waters, Boston Private's chairman, said in the release. "We believe her experience in these areas will be valuable to our company as we continue to pursue our strategy to become a premier wealth management and private banking company in our target markets."
