New CFO Leaves Hanover Insurance

September 18, 2007

The Hanover Insurance Group, Inc. has confirmed that its recently-hired executive vice president and chief financial officer, John J. Leahy, is resigning for personal reasons.

The company said the search for a successor is already underway.

In the meantime, Frederick Eppinger, president and chief executive officer, will serve as acting chief financial officer and Warren E. Barnes will be acting principal accounting officer. Barnes has been vice president and corporate controller since 1997.

Before agreeing to join The Hanover at the beginning of this month, Leahy had served in key roles with PepsiCo, Inc. and with Keane, Inc., a Boston-based business and IT services firm.

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