Argo Group appoints new Europe/Asia head
Argo Group subsidiary ArgoGlobal has appointed Dominic Kirby as managing director of Argo Managing Agency.
He replaces David Harris, who has been transitioning since September 2016 into a new group-level role, head of performance with specific accountability for performance management, reporting directly to Argo Group CEO, Mark Watson III.
Watson said: “Dom has been a valuable member of the Ariel Re underwriting leadership team. Given his depth of experience and record of success, I’m confident he is the right person to lead the group.”
“David played a pivotal leadership role in developing the Argo Managing Agency into one of the leading syndicates at Lloyd’s. Most recently, David provided tremendous leadership to the team successfully integrating Ariel Re, Syndicate 1910 and 6117. I’m pleased David is willing to take on this new, larger enterprise role and that the entire organization will benefit from his expertise.”
Kirby was previously the head of Ariel Re UK. Prior to joining Ariel Re in 2015, he was managing director at Torus Underwriting Management. From 2007 to 2011, Kirby served as deputy managing director, and ultimately managing director at Flagstone Syndicate Management. Previously, he worked for Navigators Group, London and Navigators Underwriting Agency.
