Argo International’s head of marine and energy Philip Thorpe-Apps said: “We are committed to developing our cargo account by attracting underwriters who have the technical and underwriting expertise to complement our existing team and who share the service-driven ethos that is the foundation of our offering.

“Jon has these qualities in abundance as well as a terrific track record in the sector.”
