Kevin Rehnberg to serve as Argo Group Chief Administrative Officer

HAMILTON, Bermuda – December 18, 2018 – Argo Group International Holdings, Ltd. (NYSE: ARGO), an international underwriter of specialty insurance and reinsurance products, today announced the appointment of Kevin Rehnberg to serve as chief administrative officer in addition to continuing as the head of Argo’s insurance business for the U.S. and Latin America.

“We have made great strides in creating a more efficient organization and enhancing customer service. Our progress is evident in the company’s quarterly results, with both increased written premium and lower expenses,” said Argo Group CEO Mark E. Watson III. “In order to accelerate these efforts, we have repositioned the executive committee to focus more of our time and energy evaluating strategic priorities and directing resources to the best opportunities – while at the same time relying more heavily on our talented group of leaders to continue to improve our operations.

“It is with this in mind that I have decided to move more of the company’s operations under Kevin’s leadership, which should give me more time to focus on our digital businesses and our investment portfolio. Kevin has transformed the U.S. business, demonstrating a persistent drive for results and continuous improvement. I’m certain he will take on these responsibilities with the same vigorous approach.”

Rehnberg joined Argo in 2013 as the president of U.S. Operations. Earlier this year, he took on responsibility for the company’s business in Latin America. Before joining the company, he served as executive vice president for specialty lines at OneBeacon Insurance, where he oversaw specialty underwriting operations and acquired and built new lines of specialty business. Rehnberg held similar senior executive positions at The St. Paul Travelers Companies, Liberty International and Chubb Corporation. More recently, he served as CEO of Consultants in Laboratory Medicine of Greater Toledo Inc. He has a bachelor’s degree in history from Princeton University.
