Graeme MacMillan to Join The Ardonagh Group

21 November 2019

The Ardonagh Group (“Ardonagh” or “the Group”) has today announced the appointment of Graeme MacMillan as CEO of Product and Distribution Management within Ardonagh Portfolio Solutions (“APS”).

In this newly created role, Graeme will oversee various functions across broker and carrier engagement and product design on behalf of the entire Group portfolio of £3 billion premium.

Graeme joins Ardonagh from Aviva, where he has been Director, International Brokers, since October 2017. Prior to this, he was UK Placement Strategy Director and CEO of the UK Markets Division of Marsh.

Commenting on this appointment, David Ross, CEO of The Ardonagh Group said today:

“We have spent much of 2019 revamping our placement strategy, having invested heavily across the Group to consolidate systems and enhance data capture capability.

Paul Dilley and the APS team, including Steve Dando who joined us from Marsh earlier in the year, have made great strides in working with our carrier partners across multiple products and jurisdictions.

The arrival of Graeme is a key step in accelerating our strategy and further signals our intent to embed a focus on data across the entirety of our operations. We are delighted that he has chosen to join us as we move into the next phase of delivery.”

It is expected that Graeme will take up his new position in 2020.
