Jun 29, 2007

LONDON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--ACE European Group (NYSE:ACE) has today announced some changes to its Continental European country management with immediate effect.

Jeff Moghrabi is to assume the role of Country Manager for ACE France, replacing Olivier Muraire. Jeff moves to ACEs Paris office from Milan where he was Manager for ACE in the Southern European region - encompassing Italy, Spain and the newly established Portuguese operation.

Maurizio Ferrario, currently Head of Strategic Development for ACE Italy, assumes the role of Deputy Country Manager and he will also manage ACEs Italian operations until a new Country Manager is appointed. Angel Diaz, currently Property and Casualty Manager for ACE Spain, will become Country Manager for the Iberia region

Commenting on the changes, David Furby, President for Continental Europe, said, Jeff brings a wealth of experience to his new role for ACE France, which is our single largest market in Continental Europe. In recent years ACE has enjoyed tremendous success in the French Market and I am confident that under Jeffs leadership, ACE France will continue to build on this success.

Maurizio Ferrario, who has been with ACE Italy since 2003, has been a key figure in the successful establishment of our new branch network and distribution platform in Italy. In his new position he will ensure the management transition is as smooth as possible.

I am also delighted to announce the promotion of Angel Diaz to Country Manager for both Spain and Portugal. Our Portuguese operation opened earlier this year and is one part of our strategy to expand our geographical presence throughout the European region.

Finally, I would like to take this opportunity to thank Olivier Muraire for his contribution to ACE France, under whose leadership, the French team has achieved excellent results and business growth.
