Mr. Pasquesi said, “Dinos was instrumental in developing Arch into a highly profitable company with a worldwide insurance, reinsurance and mortgage insurance presence. 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.”

I am grateful to have had the opportunity to learn from and work with him for nearly twenty years. I look forward to ongoing engagement with our Board of Directors under John’s leadership as we continue to help our clients, employees, investors and communities achieve their greatest potential.”
