Artex is proud to announce that two of its leaders have been named to Captive Review's 25 at 25 list of most influential captive figures since 1999. Honorees were selected by Captive Review based on its Power 50 public poll responses, advisement from several of the industry's most experienced leads, and contributions to the magazine and events over the past 25 years.

The awardees

Peter Mullen, Global chief executive officer

Captive Review reported: Peter Mullen is one of the industry's best-known captive leaders, having led two of the largest captive operations in the world. After starting his insurance career more than 30 years ago, he first made his mark in Gallagher's Bermuda office, helping to found Artex in 1997. He left Artex to become global CEO of Aon Captive and Insurance Management in 2011, returning to Artex in 2019 to assume the role of CEO. In dictating how two of the largest captive managers are run, few can match the influence he's had during Captive Review's lifetime.

"I am delighted to be recognized amongst this amazing group of peers. The captive industry is extremely collegial, so I'm happy to say that many of my peers are also friends. What a great group of people to be associated with," said Peter.

George McGhie, strategic advisor, Asia Pacific

Captive Review reported: George McGhie has been one of the standout figures in the development of Asia's captive insurance market over the last 25 years. One of the most knowledgeable people on captives in the region, McGhie established Johnson & Higgins' APAC captive operation in 1993 after a spell with the captive manager in Bermuda; on its acquisition by Marsh, he was appointed to lead the consolidated APAC office. He went on to establish JLT's APAC operation in 2001 and later lead WTW's APAC captive practice between 2015 and 2021. Today he continues to offer consulting services in the region and is a strategic adviser to Artex.

"I was surprised and delighted to be included alongside so many old friends and colleagues," said George. "Helping to develop and adapt solutions in such a varied region remains a fascinating challenge. Asia Pacific is a small part of the global captive world, but the value of captive solutions to risk owners is no less significant."
