Becky Humphrey is a director at Conning, in the insurance research group, where she leads a change initiative aimed at modernizing the group’s products, services and delivery.

She is also responsible for increasing connectivity throughout the firm and leveraging the group’s insurance industry expertise more broadly. In addition, Humphrey is a property-casualty researcher and consultant who enjoys providing strategic advice, market analysis, and guidance to leadership teams and boards of directors.

What’s been your biggest professional accomplishment so far in your career?

Developing my knowledge of the crop insurance industry. In addition to authoring well-respected research on this sector, Conning has been an advisor to more than a third of the crop insurance industry on various strategic projects over the past three years.

How are you involved in the community?

Member of the Roberts Foundation, where I serve on the investment subcommittee. The foundation funds the creation and presentation of works of art, locally. Member of the Hartford Stage junior board. Co-chair of the Stage One Committee and serve on the investment and finance committees.

What do you like to do outside of work?

I love international travel; my partner and I are committed to traveling to at least one new country every year. This year we are visiting Peru and hiking Machu Picchu. Additionally, I love theatre, hiking, weightlifting, reading nonfiction and listening to podcasts.

Four reasons why you deserve to be a 40 Under Forty:

• Serve on two local arts nonprofit board of directors — Hartford Stage and The Roberts Foundation.

• Committed to mentoring other young professionals and interns at Conning and in the community.

• One of Conning’s youngest directors.

• Founded two employee-resource groups to increase professional-development opportunities and points of connection for employees.
