HAMILTON, Bermuda – January 18, 2016 -- Everest Re Group, Ltd. (NYSE: RE) announced today that Mark de Saram, Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer of Everest Reinsurance (Bermuda), Ltd., has notified the Company of his decision to retire effective April 6, 2016.
Mr. de Saram joined Everest in 1995 as Vice President of its United Kingdom and European operations and in 2004 was appointed Chief Executive Officer of Everest Re (Bermuda), Ltd.

In addition, he is Chairman of the Board of Everest Re (Ireland) Limited and a director on the Board of Everest Underwriting Group (Ireland) Limited.
Mr. Dominic J. Addesso, President and Chief Executive Officer, said, "Mark’s strong leadership, wide market knowledge, and underwriting talent have contributed, over many years, to the success we have had in building out Everest’s global position. During his tenure, Mark, amongst other things, was instrumental in establishing both our Bermuda and Ireland operations and also assisted with our recent entry into Lloyd’s. With more than 20 years at Everest, his guidance and counsel will be greatly missed, although I am delighted that he has agreed to remain as a non-executive director on the Boards of several of our operating companies."
