Job hunters who like the idea of working for Prudential Financial Inc. have a new name to learn: Lucien Alziari.
The Newark, New Jersey-based insurer today said it has hired Alziari to succeed Sharon Taylor as a senior vice president and chief human resources officer.
Taylor began working for Prudential as a management trainee in 1976. She has decided to retire, Prudential said.
Alziari was the chief human resources officer at A.P. Moller-Maersk, a Danish shipping company, from October 2012 until last month. Before that, he spent eight years as the head of human resources at Avon Products Inc.
Alziari has a bachelor’s degree in modern history from the University of Bristol in the United Kingdom.
