Robert Myron is leaving the company to pursue another business opportunity

Argo Group’s chief financial officer Robert Myron has decided to leave the company to pursue another business opportunity.

Myron was previously with PXRE Group until its merger with Argonaut Group in August of this year. At PXRE, he served in a variety of capacities, including chief financial officer of PXRE Group and, prior to that, treasurer of PXRE Group.

“Bob played a key role in ensuring the merger between Argonaut Group and PXRE Group proceeded smoothly and efficiently,” said Argo Group president and chief executive officer Mark Watson III. “His knowledge of and experience with the Bermuda insurance market as well as his professional expertise were invaluable during this process. We are grateful for all he contributed and wish Bob and his family well as he embarks upon a new chapter in his professional development.”

Argo Group also announced Mark Haushill has accepted an appointment to serve as the interim chief financial officer of Argo Group while the company conducts a search to fill the position on a permanent basis. It expects to complete its search in the fourth quarter.

“Mark Haushill has served as the chief financial officer of Argonaut Group since 2001 and has a thorough understanding of all of our businesses, including the International Specialty segment,” added Watson. “His willingness to accept the role of interim chief financial officer of Argo Group assures that we will have a seamless transition of Myron’s responsibilities.”
