Montpelier Board of Directors in May 2007 and appointed Deputy Chairman in May

held on May 17^th, but he will continue to serve as COO until the end of the
year. Thereafter, he will continue to serve as Chairman of Montpelier
Underwriting Agencies Limited (“MUAL”), a role he has held since MUAL was
first authorized to act as Lloyd’s Managing Agent of Syndicate 5151 in January

Anthony Taylor, Chairman of Montpelier, said, “Tom was Employee #1 when
Montpelier was established and has worn many hats during his tenure with the
Company. He has been instrumental in all of the major initiatives which the
Montpelier Group has undertaken over the last twelve years. I have valued both
his management skills and his wise counsel. While the Company will miss his
day to day involvement with the Group we very much welcome his continuation of
service as Non-Executive Chairman of MUAL.”
