ANN K. TRIPP
Senior vice president, chief investment officer, president for Opus Investment Management, Inc., member of The Partner Group, the company's most senior leadership team
The Hanover Insurance Group, Inc., Worcester
Colleges: Franklin & Marshall College in Pennsylvania, Boston University
As SVP, CIO and president of Hanover subsidiary Opus, Tripp is responsible for the investment strategy of more than $10 billion in client assets. Her most visible role to the Greater Worcester economy comes in the Opus role, where she takes the lead for Hanover in the Worcester downtown revitalization effort known as CitySquare. From the beginning of the $565-million project, Hanover and Tripp have been the ones to get the ball moving, buying up rundown properties and fixing them up – or demolishing them – so developers could come in and create active uses for the neighborhood, like the 145 Front St. apartments and the AC Hotel by Marriott. Behind the scenes, Tripp's participation in the Hanover's Partner Group means she plays a key role in the development of the city's only publicly traded company with 1,800 employees and $5.2 billion in revenues.
