A global insurance brokerage and professional services firm in the areas of risk, strategy, and people, has welcomed a new addition to its board of directors.

The board of Marsh & McLennan elected Tamara Ingram, global chairman of New York City-based creative, data, and technology agency, Wunderman Thompson, as director. Ingram’s appointment brings the number of the company’s directors to 13.

Ingram previously worked with media conglomerate WPP, where she held a range of roles including global CEO of J. Walter Thompson, group CEO of Grey UK, and team leader for Procter & Gamble. Earlier in her career, Ingram was CEO of McCann Worldgroup and CEO of Saatchi & Saatchi’s London office.

“I am delighted to welcome Tamara to the board,” said H. Edward Hanway, independent chairman of the company’s board of directors. “Tamara’s expertise in data-driven marketing and operational skills in leading a client-focused, global business make her a tremendous addition to our board. We look forward to working closely with her.”

Ingram was also a non-executive director of London Stock Exchange-listed companies Sage Group plc and Serco Group. She is a Trustee of Save the Children International (UK) and was awarded an OBE (Officer of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire) for her work as chairman of Visit London.
