Artex Risk Solutions, the wholly-owned subsidiary of Gallagher for alternative risk and captives, has revealed a leadership transition plan with significant changes set for next year.

It was announced that Artex chief executive and co-founder Peter Mullen (pictured left) will step into the role of chairman starting January 1, 2025, while Gallagher executive vice president Zeb Holt (pictured right) is slated to become CEO-designate on July 1.

Holt will officially take over from Mullen as chief executive at the beginning of 2025. The next CEO’s journey in the insurance sector began two decades ago when he started as an intern at Gallagher.

Throughout Holt’s career, he has undertaken various brokerage and sales leadership roles within Gallagher and Artex. Prior to his current position as Regional EVP – Florida, which he assumed in 2018, Holt served as Gallagher’s area president of South Florida.

The appointments come on the heels of Gallagher’s swoop for retail insurance agency Crawford Insurance in Pittsburgh.The acquisition will see James Crawford and his team continue to operate from their current location in Pennsylvania. They will be under the leadership of Sean Gallagher, who oversees the wider group’s Great Lakes region retail property and casualty brokerage division.
