Erie Insurance taps 21-year company veteran as CIO

Erie Insurance has announced the appointment of Ronald Habursky as senior vice president and chief investment officer. The appointment will take effect July 12.

Habursky joined Erie Insurance in 1999 as a fixed-income securities analyst. In 2000, he was promoted to alternative investment manager, then to portfolio manager for external investments in 2008. Most recently, he has managed Erie’s fixed-income portfolio as vice president and senior portfolio manager.

“I am pleased that Ron has accepted this promotion,” said Greg Gutting, executive vice president and chief financial officer for Erie Insurance. “He brings an impressive background in both fixed income and equity investments to our CIO role, and he was also instrumental in building out Erie’s alternative investment portfolio in the early 2000s.”

Prior to joining Erie Insurance, Habursky was a financial analyst at GE Transportation Systems.
