Mr. Alfieri will also have responsibility for ACE’s National Accounts segment in North America. “The new Global Accounts division at ACE represents a further investment and significant commitment to both our large National Accounts customers in North America and our multinational customers around the globe,” said Mr. Keogh. “More and more companies are finding opportunities to do business outside their home countries. As a result, they need an insurance company that can help them with their global risk exposures. ACE is one of the very few insurers capable of coordinating underwriting across multiple lines and geographies and delivering truly global services to both brokers and clients. Global Accounts brings to bear all of ACE’s capabilities – our people, products and network infrastructure – to serve this important and growing market.
