Christiansen Appointed President, CEO of Lindsey Morden and Cunningham Lindsey U.S.

August 5, 2004

Toronto-based Lindsey Morden Group Inc. announced that its board of directors board named Jan Christiansen as the new president and chief executive officer of Lindsey Morden and Cunningham Lindsey U.S. Inc.

The board also accepted the resignation of Karen Murphy as president and CEO of Lindsey Morden and Cunningham Lindsey U.S.

Christiansen has 30 years of global experience in a variety of industries. During the last 10 years he has focused on the service industry in the role of chief financial officer, first with Panalpina, an integrated international freight forwarder and later with USF Worldwide Inc., a subsidiary of USF Corporation.

James Dowd, chairman of Lindsey Morden, said, “The board has accepted Ms. Murphy’s decision to resign and expresses its appreciation for her contribution to the company during the last 4 years. Ms. Murphy felt that given the recent successful completion of the previously announced sale of the third party administration business in the United States and refinancing of Lindsey Morden’s shortterm indebtedness, the timing of her resignation was appropriate. We wish her success in her future endeavors. We also feel fortunate that Mr. Christiansen is available to lead Lindsey Morden. His experience in global markets and the service industry is an excellent fit for us.”

Lindsey Morden Group Inc. is a holding company which, through its subsidiaries, provides a wide range of independent insurance claims services, including claims adjusting, appraisal and claims and risk management services. It has a worldwide network of branches in Canada, the United States, the United Kingdom, continental Europe, the Far East, Latin America and the Middle East.
