July 27, 2007

The Hanover Insurance Group, Inc. reported that John J. Leahy will
assume the role of executive vice president and chief financial officer, effective Sept. 1. In this position, he will provide overall leadership for all aspects of the company’s financial operations and investments.

Over the past 25 years, Leahy has served in key financial, business and strategy roles with PepsiCo, Inc. and with Keane, Inc., a Boston-based business and IT services firm.

Leahy comes to The Hanover from Keane, where he was executive vice president and chief financial officer since 1999, and served as interim president and chief executive officer during much of 2006.

Prior to joining Keane, Leahy spent 17 years at PepsiCo. There, he
served in a number of key roles, providing financial management and
oversight, and developing business strategies.

Leahy will succeed Edward J. Parry, III, who in February announced
plans to leave the company and pursue other career opportunities. Parry’s resignation will be effective August 31, 2007.
