Corporate Governance

Welcome to the Corporate Governance section of the Everest Re Group, Ltd. website. This section has been established to provide the general public with access to the key documents and policies that embody the Company's commitment to sound corporate practices. Included are the charters of the Audit, Compensation and Nominating and Governance Committees, the Corporate Governance Guidelines, the Ethics Guidelines, the CEO and Senior Financial Officer Code of Ethics, the Procedure for Communicating with members of the Board of Directors and Bye-law 12 of the Company's Bye-laws, which sets forth the procedures for the nomination of candidates for the Board of Directors by Members (i.e. shareholders). In addition, this section lists the committee affiliations of all Board members. All members of the Audit, Compensation and Nominating and Governance Committees have been determined by the Board to meet SEC and NYSE standards for independence. Mr. Singer and Mr. Weber, who are otherwise independent, rely on exemption 10A-3(b)(1)(iv)(B) to serve on the boards of two of the Company’s intermediate subsidiaries. Their service has been determined by the Board to be appropriate for this exemption.
