Esurance Selects Mobility Services International to Drive Its Growing Relocation Needs

– Online Auto Insurance Company Anticipates Multiple Relocations By Years End – 

NEWBURYPORT, Mass. (June 13, 2005) Esurance is on the road to relocation success.

Mobility Services International (MSI), a leading relocation management company serving the employee mobility needs of corporations worldwide, today announced that San Francisco-based Esurance, a direct-to-consumer personal auto insurance company with more than 150,000 policyholders throughout the United States and a subsidiary of White Mountains Insurance Group, Ltd. (NYSE: WTM) since 2000, has selected MSIs services for the companys ongoing relocation needs.

Jim Traceski, Director of Human Resources for Esurance, said, I am confident that MSIs significant expertise will provide our fast-growing company with quality relocation services, allowing us to benefit from more well-adjusted employees during what can be a stressful time. MSIs services will also allow our HR department to remain focused on strategic initiatives and on our ongoing commitment to offering high levels of customer service.

Traceski explained that rapid increases in the number of customers seeking auto insurance from the company made it necessary for Esurance to expand its workforce, creating new office locations to accommodate sales and claims. Esurances staff grew from 330 employees to 530 employees in 2004, and Traceski anticipates that amount will nearly double this year, leading to multiple relocations throughout the U.S. by the end of 2005.

Timm Runnion, president and CEO of MSI, said, We look forward to supporting Esurance as their relocation provider of choice, assisting them with cost-effective solutions that complement all of the companys transitions.
