He previously served as an executive vice president at Travelers Insurance, and before that served as a managing director in the investment banking and equity teams at Credit Suisse First Boston.
Argo Group chairman, Gary Woods, commented: “The nominating committee regularly evaluates the make-up of the board, determining opportunities for refreshment and reviewing succession plans. Our objective is to ensure we consistently have the right blend of expertise and to provide strong, independent oversight.
He added: “The board has added five new independent directors in the past two years,”
“Each new member provides unique value, skill and diversity of views to the board.”
Latham has global industry experience that spans more than forty years, and has served as an independent director of the board of Argo Managing Agency since 2016.
At the same time, he has held numerous board positions across the sector, including both director and chairman of Pool Re.
He started his career with Sedgwick, before spending 17 years with RSA Group where he served as a member of the group executive, and held other senior executive roles, including managing director of the global risks division.
