BI’s Article search uses Boolean search capabilities. If you are not familiar with these principles, here are some quick tips.

To search specifically for more than one word, put the search term in quotation marks. For example, “workers compensation”. This will limit your search to that combination of words.

To search for a combination of terms, use quotations and the & symbol. For example, “hurricane” & “loss”.

Argo Group International Holdings Ltd. said Monday it has named Jeff Grange executive vice president for U.S. operations.

The Hamilton, Bermuda-based specialty insurer and reinsurer said Mr. Grange will responsible for U.S. claims and lead the Argo Casualty, Argo Pro, Argo Insurance, Rockwood and Argo Cyber businesses.

Mr. Grange was previously president of specialty and commercial insurance and global head of trade credit and surety business at
New York-based QBE North America, a division of Sydney-based QBE Insurance Group Ltd.

Other executive changes

Argo Group said in an Oct. 31 statement it was introducing a new reporting structure, to be led by three newly appointed executive vice presidents.

It said Gary Grose would oversee the contract, property, environmental, inland marine and transportation businesses, while Tim Carter would be responsible for U.S. underwriting as well a surety, programs-risk bearing, programs-alternative risk solutions, Trident public risk solution and Argo construction.

It said a third executive vice president who would be responsible for the duties now assigned to Mr. Grange would be named later.

At the time, it was reported the three executives would report to Kevin Rehnberg, who was then president, group chief administrative officer and head of the Americas for Argo.

However, Mr. Rehnberg now holds the position of interim chief executive officer following last month’s announcement that former CEO Mark Watson was stepping down, with securities regulators investigating the company over its executive compensation practices.
