Ardonagh Group makes senior management changes 

Ardonagh Group, the UK-based parent of investment and distribution firm Envest, has made changes to its senior management team for next year. 

Conor Brennan will assume the new role of Ardonagh International Executive Chairman, bringing entities previously part of Ardonagh Europe and Ardonagh Global Partners into one platform supported by a single leadership team. 

Des O’Connor, previously Ardonagh Global Partners CEO, will become Chief Investment Officer International and John McCarthy has been named CFO International. 

In other changes Antony Erotocritou will take on the role of Ardonagh Group Chief Commercial Officer, working with Group CEO David Ross, CFO Diane Cougill and CIO Aurelio Cusaro on corporate and financial transactions. 

Andrew Wallin, previously Group Head of M&A, has been appointed CEO of Specialty Broking. 

Mr Ross says the appointments reflect Ardonagh’s ability to leverage a “pool of exceptional people” to build on the group’s track record. 

“We have very deliberately built a deep bench of talent within our top team, a group of people with unique expertise and complementary skillsets,” Mr Ross said. 

“Over the years we have been able to draw on this time and time again as the shape and structure of this company has evolved.”
