ArgoGlobal has appointed Noel Praveen as senior underwriter for casualty and professional lines, effective immediately. He is based in Dubai.

According to a statement from the Lloyd’s insurer, Praveen will report to Samir Hemsi, ArgoGlobal’s chief underwriting officer for the MENA region, also based in Dubai.

“Noel is an outstanding underwriter, recognised for his excellent technical skills, who will be a great addition to the Dubai team,” said Hemsi. “I would like to welcome him to ArgoGlobal Dubai and am confident that his hire will strengthen the company’s widely respected casualty and professional lines in MENA.”
