Argo takes on marine exec from RSA

Argo International has hired an experienced marine underwriter from RSA.

Jon Hamilton joins Argo’s marine cargo division. He takes up his new position with immediate effect and will report to Paul Gooderson, cargo class underwriter.

Hamilton joins from RSA, where as senior underwriter for marine cargo and specie, he was instrumental in the development and management of a leading international cargo portfolio. Prior to this, he spent over eight years underwriting marine cargo and specie at Hardy.

Philip Thorpe-Apps, Argo International, head of marine and energy, says, “We are committed to developing our cargo account by attracting underwriters who have the technical and underwriting expertise to complement our existing team and who share the service driven ethos which is the foundation of our offering.”

“Jon has these qualities in abundance as well as a terrific track record in the sector; I am very pleased to welcome him to Argo.”
