To drive the growth of its operations in the Midlands, ACE Europe has appointed Paul Jennings as the new property and casualty manager and David Rose as the new business development manager in its Birmingham office.

Mr Jennings is responsible for the expansion of ACE’s property and casualty business in the Midlands. He has over 20 years underwriting experience and previously worked for Oval and Willis.

Mr Rose is responsible for ACE’s broker development within the Midlands. David joins from Zurich, where he was a senior account executive, responsible for national broker development. He has also held a number of positions within the Midlands broking community.

Patrick Drinan, director of national development and distribution of ACE for UK and Ireland, said: These appointments support our commitment and future development plans for this important region. The experience that Paul and David bring with them, coupled with the strength of the ACE proposition, provides a strong platform for us as we continue to look at ways to enhance our presence in the Midlands.
