The Guardian Life Insurance Company of America has announced the election of Eileen Murray to its board of directors.

Murray is the incoming chair of the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA). She served as co-chief executive officer of Bridgewater Associates from 2011 until April of this year.
