HAMILTON, Bermuda--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Global Atlantic Financial Group Limited (Global Atlantic) has announced that Tom Milligan, Co-CEO of its Ariel Holdings Limited subsidiary, will retire upon the closing of the planned sale of Ariel Re companies to Banco BTG Pactual S.A. (BTG Pactual). Tom Hulst, currently Co-CEO overseeing all underwriting and business operations, will remain in the role of CEO at the close of the transaction, which is currently pending regulatory approvals.
“When the sale of Ariel Re to BTG Pactual closes, the time will be right for me to step down,” Milligan said. “Ariel has an outstanding team and track record and the business will be in great hands with Ariel Re leadership team and its new owners.”
Milligan has been with Global Atlantic for nine years, predating the company’s separation from Goldman Sachs in 2013.
“I want to thank Tom for his significant contributions to our business. After establishing our Property and Casualty franchise in Bermuda in 2005, he played a leading role in our entry into Lloyds of London in 2008 and our acquisition of Ariel Re in 2012,” said Allan Levine, Chairman and CEO of Global Atlantic. “As Co-CEO of Ariel Holdings, Tom has been instrumental in setting strategy, and in the growth and strong financial results of the business.”
