Today’s guest is an executive with a big job to do.
The broad market turn, driving improved performance, tidying up back years and dealing Covid-19 are enough for most executives, but on top of all that this new leader’s company has had the fallout from an acrimonious public dispute with an activist investor to deal with.
As part of Argo Group’s new management team, Chief Underwriting Officer Tim Carter has a lot on his plate.
Yet he is unfazed. In this encounter I found someone really calm, easygoing, and infectiously optimistic.
He’s also a rare combination – an actuary who is an excellent communicator and someone who comes across as a strong people person.
The next 20 minutes should leave you in little doubt that Argo is going to re-focus on its core niches in specialty where it can produce the best growth and underwriting results.
