The changes remain subject to the usual regulatory approvals.

managing a number of ACE’s most strategically important mature and emerging
markets in Europe. Together with his recent regional experience as chief
operating officer, this makes him the ideal choice to lead our Continental
Europe business through challenging external conditions and work with our
distribution partners to identify new opportunities for profitable growth.
“Steve’s arrival in Europe allows us to benefit from our tradition of moving

connects us more closely with our customers. I am pleased that our European
clients will continue to benefit from his talents in his new global accounts
