Argo Group picks Cazar to lead LatAm business


Argo Group International Holdings has appointed Jorge Luis Cazar León to lead the company’s Latin America business, which includes insurance and reinsurance operations in Central and South America.

The company said that Cazar takes up the role with immediate effect and will report to Jose Hernandez, head of international.

“Argo Group has built an impressive international platform, and I’m pleased to have Jorge join the team,” said Hernandez. “His strong leadership skills and experience fully align with the international growth aspirations we have strategically established for the company.”

Cazar joins Argo from Chubb Group where he most recently served as division president, international accident and health (A&H) business. He was appointed regional president of ACE's Latin America operations in 2006, a position he retained after ACE's acquisition of Chubb in January of that year.

Before that, Cazar served as senior vice president, A&H, for the company's Asia Pacific region; regional vice president, A&H, in Latin America; and country president for ACE in Argentina and Chile. Before joining ACE in 2001, he held several leadership roles with CIGNA International, a global property and casualty company ACE purchased in 1999. He began his career at Bolivar Insurance Company in Ecuador.
