Advisen Announces New Executive Appointments.

Jack Davis Appointed Managing Principal; Ed Berlin Named Vice President of Integration

NEW YORK -- Advisen Ltd., the leading provider of analytics, benchmarking and market information to the global commercial insurance industry, today announced two new executive appointments. Jack Davis has been named managing principal and will oversee enterprise sales efforts. Ed Berlin has been appointed vice president of integration and is responsible for directing enterprise deployments.

Davis joins Advisen from AmbironTrustWave where he served as vice president of enterprise sales. Previously, Berlin was the managing director of integration partnerships at Thomson Financial. Davis and Berlin round out Advisen's executive management team and will play key roles as the company expands sales and marketing efforts to support broader distribution of its information and analytics platform for buyers, brokers and sellers of commercial insurance policies.

Davis brings more than 25 years of experience providing technology for business systems integration at Fortune 500 financial institutions. Prior to the merger of TrustWave and Ambiron in 2004, Davis was the executive vice president of sales and marketing of TrustWave Corporation. He joined TrustWave from Planet Associates where he served as senior vice president of sales and marketing and as corporate senior vice president. Prior to that, Davis spent more than nine years at J.D. Carreker & Associates and served in several executive sales and marketing roles. He was responsible for positioning the company to sell to the top 400 U.S. financial institutions and led the acquisition of Antinori Software which helped to establish the company as a market leader. Davis was promoted to managing director/executive vice president and later as acting president of the software division. In this role, Davis was instrumental throughout the company's initial public offering.

Berlin joins Advisen with more than 25 years of business development and global product deployment experience within the financial services markets. At Thomson Financial, Berlin was responsible for the Merrill Lynch Wealth Management Technology Platform (WMTP) project, the largest retail brokerage project of its kind in the U.S., as well as additional client initiatives that represented an estimated $200 million in revenue. Prior to Thomson, Berlin was a principal at Corridor Partners, a business development and marketing consultancy. He also served as managing director of global product development and delivery for Deutsche Bank where he oversaw the development of an integrated global product delivery platform, dbPortfolio. Prior to that, Berlin spent 22 years at Citibank serving in several executive management roles.

"Jack and Ed have already become invaluable members of our executive team," said Tom Ruggieri, CEO of Advisen. "Their wealth of knowledge and breadth of experience in the financial services industry complement our efforts in the commercial insurance industry, and will enhance our ability to service the growing needs of our customers."
