MORRISTOWN, N.J., Jan. 24, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Crum & Forster (C&F) announced
today that it has hired Roger Potter to head up a new initiative designed to
assist its underwriting, marketing, and claims operations through data mining
and predictive modeling. As Vice President of Data Analytics, Mr. Potter will
expand and enhance C&F's quantitative analysis capabilities and work closely
with business leaders to identify areas where the use of business intelligence
and strategic analyses can improve operating efficiencies and underwriting
results.

Mr. Potter comes to C&F with over 20 years of experience in the areas of
quantitative research and analysis. Most recently he served as Head of
Advanced Analytics at TyMetrix, a subsidiary of Wolters Kluwer, serving
corporate law departments and claims organizations. Prior to that, Mr. Potter
held various research and development positions at Travelers and The Hartford.
Mr. Potter received his B. A. and M.A. in Economics from the University of
Connecticut and holds the CPCU designation.

Mr. Potter will be based in Morristown, NJ, reporting to Matt Kunish, Senior
Vice President & Chief Actuary. Mr. Kunish commented: "We are excited to have
Roger join us with his vast experience in data analytics. Data, by itself,
without in-depth analysis in conjunction with business needs, is ineffective.
Roger will drive our efforts to better utilize the vast amount of data we
collect and translate it into strategic business solutions."
