Business deal work handshake people

Admiral has appointed Manning Rountree as a non-executive director.

He has also joined the motor insurer’s risk committee.

Rountree is a senior executive at Bermuda-based global insurance group White Mountains, overseeing transactions, mergers and acquisitions and new business development.

Before joining White Mountains in 2004 he was a consultant at McKinsey & Company, focusing on insurance, asset management and financial services.

Admiral group chairman Alastair Lyons said: “Now that Admiral has both developing auto insurance and price comparison businesses in the United States I am delighted that someone of Manning’s experience in the US insurance sector has agreed to join our group board.

“We already much value his input as a member of the board of, our US price comparison business in which White Mountains has an investment.”
