Argo appoints new US division president
Bermudian-based Argo Group International Holdings Ltd has appointed Jessica Snyder president, US insurance.
Ms Snyder will report to Tom Bradley, Argo’s executive chairman and chief executive officer.
Mr Bradley said: “Jessica has extensive executive experience in the property and casualty insurance industry that will serve Argo well as we continue to invest in the US business and accelerate profitable growth.
“She also has a proven track record of leading transformational growth strategies. We are confident she is a strong leader to help drive our US business into the future.”
With almost 30 years of industry experience, Ms Snyder joins Argo from GuideOne Insurance where she most recently served as its president and chief executive officer from 2017 through 2022.
During her time at GuideOne, Argo said, Ms Snyder led the company’s restructuring to a mutual holding company, expanded its niche commercial and excess and surplus insurance product lines, reconfigured its reinsurance programme, and strengthened the leadership team and board with experienced executives.
Argo said her efforts resulted in the resurgence of GuideOne, delivering profitable growth and diversified revenue streams.
Ms Snyder said: “Argo is a dynamic company with a clear and proven strategic vision for driving results across the specialty insurance industry. I am excited to join the organisation as the company continues to focus and fortify its operating model and pursue a profitable growth strategy.”
