Adrian Lynch will join Artex as executive vice president for North America in March 2021.
Lynch will take up his new position subject to the appropriate approvals and after fulfilling his contractual obligations at Aon Captive & Insurance Management where he is currently captive strategy leader for the Americas, and managing director of Aon Cayman, roles he has held for the past seven years.
Meanwhile Kevin Heffernan will retire from Artex in March 2021. Heffernan has been with Artex for 15 years in a number of operational and domicile management roles and for the past 14 months has led captive operations across the US as executive vice president, while overseeing day-to-day operations in the Mesa office.
Lynch will assume responsibility for the oversight and growth of Artex’s captive management offices across the US, Bermuda and the Cayman Islands and will report to Jennifer Gallagher, president of Artex North America.
Gallagher said: “Our growth strategy will be enhanced by [Lynch’s] strong history in business development and sales. He is a great fit for our culture.”
Lynch is currently deputy chair of the Insurance Managers Association Cayman (IMAC) as well as chair of the Cayman Finance reinsurance sub committee. He has also served as chairman of Special Olympics Cayman Islands (SOCI) since 2014.
