Artex International appoints new CEO
Artex International, which retains a large presence in Bermuda, has appointed Paul Eaton as its new CEO. Nick Heys has transitioned to become the group’s chairman.
Based in Guernsey, Eaton joined Artex in 2004 after more than 13 years as an underwriter in the insurance market with RSA. He spent his first 14 years at Artex in a variety of positions, ranging from client management to leading Business Development, and then moving into the role of managing director of its insurance linked securities (ILS) operations, where he was responsible for driving the strategy, planning and growth of the Artex ILS business across all locations.
Following the acquisition of Bermuda-based Horseshoe, Eaton moved into the role of commercial director for Artex Capital Solutions. Most recently, he led Artex's European operations as the regional managing director, driving growth, creativity and efficiency throughout its Malta, Gibraltar and London offices.
As the new Artex International CEO, Eaton will serve on the Artex Executive Leadership Team, driving strategy around talent, organic growth, mergers and acquisitions, and operational efficiency for Artex's international operations, including Guernsey, Gibraltar, Malta, London and Singapore.
