Argo International (‘Argo’), the Lloyd’s insurer and member of Argo Group, today announces the appointment of David Harris as managing director of Syndicate 1200 at Lloyd’s. Mr. Harris succeeds Jeff Radke who has been appointed to a group-wide operations role.

Previously he held senior operations roles in both AXA Insurance and RSA.
Argo Group Chief Executive Officer Mark E. Watson III said: “Our Lloyd’s operations have made remarkable progress, particularly since Jeff took the helm two years ago. David’s experience, reputation and relationships make him ideally suited to lead the Syndicate and build on this solid foundation and I look forward to working closely with him.”
“I’d like to congratulate Jeff on his well deserved appointment to the newly created role of head of group operations and I am certain that the disciplines he’s employed so successfully in London will be of great benefit to the wider group,” commented Mr. Watson.
Mr Harris’ appointment takes effect immediately subject to regulatory approvals.
