Argo appoints business development EVP

Argo Group International has appointed Nigel Mortimer to the newly created role of executive vice president, strategy and business development.

Mortimer will continue to lead Argo's insurance operations in Bermuda.

He joined Argo in January 2009 and has been responsible for establishing its insurance operations in Bermuda, Brazil, Dubai and Continental Europe as well as leading the group's product development initiatives.

Prior to joining Argo, Mortimer served as head of product development for XL Insurance. He has also run underwriting operations for both XL and Zurich insurance in Bermuda, London and Australia.

"We believe the future has never looked less like the present," said Argo Group president and chief executive officer Mark Watson. “We have established an ambitious route map for Argo which recognizes that we're not content to fly in the slipstream of market opportunity. Nigel has had great success in building new businesses over the past five years – businesses that have attracted skilled, entrepreneurial talent to Argo.

“He’s ideally suited for taking on this new role aimed at creating genuinely new opportunities for Argo while ensuring the effective execution of our chosen strategy.”
