Ariel Re taps TMR underwriting head for marine & energy role


Ariel Re, a reinsurance underwriting subsidiary of Argo Group that operates through its Bermuda and Lloyd's platforms, has appointed David Martin as head of marine and energy.

He will report to Matthew Wilken, deputy global head of reinsurance at Ariel Re, and will work alongside Emily Leitch, senior specialty reinsurance underwriter, to build out the business.

Martin has over 30 years of experience, and most recently served as head of UK underwriting for Tokio Millennium Re (TMR). He was also senior marine and energy underwriter in the seven years he was at TMR.

He has also held roles at Equitas, Mid Ocean Re and XL Re.

“David has a consistent and exceptional track record of growing successful books of business from the ground up,” said Wilken. “His knowledge and wealth of experience in the marine and energy markets are valuable to us as we build out the portfolio and provide a broader product offering to our customers. We are thrilled to have David as part of the Ariel Re team.”

Argo closed its acquisition of Ariel Re in February 2017.
