Artex poaches Aon's Mullen to re-join as CEO

Mar 26, 2018

Artex, an alternative risk management subsidiary of Arthur J Gallagher, has hired Peter Mullen to re-join the company after seven years as CEO-elect.

Mullen helped found Artex in 1997 and was a member of its executive team until his departure for Aon in 2011.

Mullen is currently the CEO of Aon Captive and Insurance Management. He will begin his new position at Artex in March 2019 after fulfilling his contractual obligations at Aon.

David McManus will continue to lead Artex as president and CEO until July 1, 2019 and then move into the role of chairman.

“Succession planning is a core competency of our company,” McManus said. “As our executive committee considered the future leadership of Artex, we immediately thought of Peter and the value we could create by reuniting the team that originally founded Artex,” McManus added.

“We’ve grown significantly over the past several years and are proud to now be the third-largest captive manager, according to Business Insurance. I'm confident Peter’s technical risk understanding, coupled with his creativity and innovation, will continue to drive significant growth for Artex in 2019 and beyond.”
