“The Board and I want to recognize all he did to establish Arch as a leader in the insurance industry and to develop the generation of managerial talent that is currently leading the business. We have great respect and admiration for Dinos both as a leader and as a person.”

“We have successfully completed the CEO transition process, and I look forward to continuing to work with the rest of the Board, Marc and the existing management team to help sustain Arch’s future growth,” added Pasquesi.
