Argo Seguros, the Brazilian underwriter of specialty insurance and reinsurance products and a member of Argo Group, announced the appointment of Newton Queiroz as CEO, effective May 1, 2019.

Queiroz will report to Jorge Cazar, head of Latin America at Argo Group, and will be based in São Paulo.

Queiroz has 19 years of experience in the insurance sector. He joins Argo Seguros from Swiss Re Corporate Solutions, where he was most recently CEO of Mexico and Central America.

Prior to his time at Swiss Re, he was a director at Aon, specializing in aviation and oil and gas.

“Newton joins Argo Seguros to take the business to the next level,” said Cazar. His proven and consistent track record in building successful insurance operations in the region will be decisive in the strategic expansion of Argo Seguros in Brazil.”
