Paragon Insurance Holdings LLC has assumed managing general agent responsibilities for Argo Group International Holdings Ltd.'s landscape contracting program, effective Jan. 1.
Steve Hartman, who ran the program at Argo, has joined Paragon. The business will be managed as part of Paragon's western states operations reporting into San Diego.
Acquiring the program is part of Paragon's plan to launch new programs and underwriting facilities from its San Diego operations. The sale of the program allows Argo to focus its efforts on other strategic growth opportunities within its U.S. business.
