Argo has appointed Jorge Luis Cazar León as head of Latin America, the company announced earlier this week.
Cazar joins from Chubb, where he was most recently president of the carrier’s international accident and health division.
In his new role, Cazar will lead the Argo’s Latin America business, which includes insurance and reinsurance operations in Central and South America.
He will report to Jose Hernandez, Argo's head of international.
Prior to Ace’s acquisition of Chubb last year, Cazar had been regional president of Ace's Latin America operations since 2006, a position he retained for several months post deal completion.
Before joining Ace in 2001, he held leadership roles at Cigna International.
“Argo Group has built an impressive international platform, and I’m pleased to have Jorge join the team,” remarked Hernandez.
“His strong leadership skills and experience fully align with the international growth aspirations we have strategically established for the company,” he concluded.
