“Tom has been closely involved in shaping Argo’s reinsurance strategy,” said Tim Carter, executive vice president and chief underwriting officer at Argo. “His strong technical skills and relationships in the market make him ideally suited for this important role. We look forward to working with Tom as we look to build on our past success. We would also like to thank Katie for her contributions and wish her the best in the future.”
