The Bermuda-based Argo Group International Holdings has appointed Andrew Carrier to the newly-created position of group chief underwriting officer. In this expanded role he will oversee underwriting across Argo Group’s worldwide operations and will report to Argo Group CEO Mark E. Watson III. Carrier will retain his current responsibilities as president of Argo Re and as underwriting director for Argo International.

The company also announced the resignation of Julian Enoizi, CEO of Argo International in London. He is scheduled to leave his position as of March 4 to pursue other business interests.

Jeffrey Radke has been appointed managing director of Argo International, pending approval of the Financial Services Authority in the UK, and will assume Enoizi’s responsibility for overseeing Argo Group’s syndicate at Lloyd’s. He will also report to Watson.

Since joining Argo Group in 2007, Carrier has served as president of Argo Re, Argo Group’s reinsurance segment based in Bermuda, and as underwriting director for Argo International. Prior to joining Argo Group, he was an underwriter for Kiln Group’s Syndicates 510 and 557 at Lloyd’s.

Prior to serving as director of syndicate management for Argo’s syndicate at Lloyd’s, Radke was CEO of PXRE Group from 2003 until 2007 when it merged with Argonaut Group, Inc. to form Argo Group International Holdings, Ltd. He joined PXRE as executive vice president responsible for underwriting in 2000. Prior to joining PXRE, Radke held senior positions at CAT Ltd. and Guy Carpenter and Co.
