LONDON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--ACE Europe (ACE), has announced the appointment of Andrew Morris as UK Regional Construction Underwriter.

Based in its Birmingham office, Andrew will be responsible for expanding ACEs construction business in the Midlands and South.

Andrew has nearly 25 years underwriting experience and joins ACE from Zurich where he was Corporate Construction Development Underwriter. He has also held construction underwriting positions at Axa and Groupama.

Patrick Drinan, UK & Ireland National Development and Distribution Director said: ACE is committed to strengthening its existing underwriting presence in the UK and Ireland regions. Andrews appointment builds on the recent underwriting and business development additions in Birmingham and Reading offices. It is vital that we have local underwriters in the regions with local authority to better serve the needs of our brokers and clients.

Construction has long been a key area of expertise for ACE and I am confident that with his experience of these local markets Andrew will continue to drive this side of the business forward.
