Miller Black Associates, LLC, the boutique search firm founded in 2010 by Joanna Miller, former Russell Reynolds partner, has announced the recruitment of Julia Knowlton, until recently Director of Executive Talent Acquisition and Management at The Hartford.  

Julia will join Miller Black on March 1 as a Managing Director, participating in the firm’s Human Resources practice, while also expanding Miller Black’s specialties in other corporate enabling functions, such as Legal, Compliance, Finance, Strategy, Corporate Development, Security and Risk Management, and related senior executive positions.  

Prior to her role at The Hartford, Julia spent four years with financial services boutique search firm Sheffield Haworth.  Her previous career background was with CitiGroup.  

Joanna Miller commented, “We are delighted to welcome Julia to Miller Black.  I have known Julia for a number of years, and often thought that if I ever expanded the firm, it would be with Julia.  This will allow us to accept searches like those we have been turning away due to capacity constraints.  Julia and I know a number of human resources executives in common, all of whom confirm that she will reinforce our quality of client service and candidate experience.”
