Countries: Cyprus, USA

United Kingdom citizen who died in the terrorist attacks in America on 11 September 2001.

Alexander John Robert Napier was born on 7 July 1963 in the Sovereign Base Area of Dhekelia, a British Overseas Territory on the island of Cyprus.

He was educated at Radley College, Abingdon, Oxfordshire where he had been in their rugby 1st XV in both 1979 and 1980 and played in their cricket 1st XI in 1980. He forsook cricket in 1981 to close the gap between his belated aspirations to go to university and the necessary academic level and duly went up to Newcastle University, obtaining his LL.B in 1986. He joined Credit Insurance Association Ltd, a subsidiary of Bain Hogg, in the same year.

In December 1988 he married Nicola Sykes in Cambridge, Cambridgeshire and they had three children. When they settled in America they bought their own house in Morristown, New Jersey, USA.

Credit Insurance Association Ltd were subsequently taken over by the AON Corporation and he accepted their offer to go to New York, initially to look after their eastern states' interests. In 2000 he took over their wider interests as the managing director of AON Trade Credit for the whole of the USA. The company was located on Floors 92, 93 and 98 to 105 in the South Tower, 2 World Trade Centre, Manhattan, New York, US, and it was here that he died, aged 38 years, on 11 September 2001.
