12-01-2016

ArgoGlobal, the Lloyd’s insurer and member of Bermuda-based Argo Group, has appointed Stewart Muirhead as casualty wordings manager.

Muirhead joins ArgoGlobal from Aon UK, where he spent more than 10 years, most recently as associate director/solicitor and head of Aon claims solutions. In this role he was tasked with drafting and advising the UK and US broking divisions on London market brokered policy wordings and slip construction.

Muirhead will report to Ryan Barnes, head of casualty.

“I am very pleased to welcome Stewart to ArgoGlobal,” said Barnes. “We have invested heavily in our casualty offering, recruiting personnel to bolster our expertise and building a platform that positions us well for growth.

“Stewart enhances our capabilities further. He brings a level of wording expertise, gained from extensive experience both in the insurance industry and as a solicitor acting on behalf of insurers that will differentiate us from our peers, ensuring we continue to offer best-in-class products, that are marked by precision and that evolve with market developments.”
