Based out of its Birmingham office, Mr Morris will be responsible for expanding ACE’s construction business in the Midlands and South. Mr Morris has nearly 25 years underwriting experience and joins ACE from Zurich Financial Services where he was corporate construction development underwriter.

Andrew’s appointment builds on the recent underwriting and business development additions in Birmingham and Reading offices.
