Hartford based Aetna is reportedly planning to move its headquarters to New York City.
The initial move will reportedly involve a few hundred top executives being moved from Hartford to Manhattan.
Hartford Mayor Luke Bronin says he could tell from conversations with the company's leadership that the decision to move its headquarters out of Connecticut had been made a long time ago.
After more than 160 years, Aetna says it's in talks with multiple states about relocating.
Despite acknowledging in a statement yesterday that the company is looking to move, Aetna said it's still committed to its Connecticut-based employees and the Hartford campus.
Aetna chairman and CEO Mark Bertolini has not commented on the potential move. A spokesman says the decision could be made later this summer.
