White Mountains exec joins Admiral board

A senior executive at Bermuda-based White Mountains Insurance Group has joined the board of insurer Admiral.

Manning Rountree currently oversees transactions, mergers and acquisitions and new business development.

Until recently, he also served as president of White Mountains Advisors, the company's in-house asset management operation.

He will also join Admiral’s risk committee.

Alastair Lyons, Admiral group chairman, said: "Now that Admiral has both developing auto insurance and price comparison businesses in the US 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 compare.com, our US price comparison business in which White Mountains has an investment.”
