Weston M. Hicks, President and chief executive officer of Alleghany Corporation, Capitol's parent company, commented, "It has been a pleasure working with Dave Pauly over the past decade. He has made Capitol a better company by building a strong management team and a solid infrastructure.  As a result of Dave's efforts, we believe that Capitol is well-positioned for continued success in the future.  On behalf of Alleghany, I want to thank Dave for his significant contributions, and we wish Dave well in his retirement."

Mr. Pauly stated, "Over the past eleven years, it has been a privilege to lead Capitol and work with its talented employees and valued distribution partners.  I look forward to further assisting Stephen and Capitol over the next few months as the company implements its new strategic initiative and broadens the product portfolio it provides to its agents."
