FM Global reveals big moves for senior leaders

Commercial property insurer FM Global has appointed two senior leaders as new chief officers of underwriting and client experience.

Lyndon D. Broad, who was previously the operations senior vice president of FM Global’s Boston operations, will take the role of senior vice president and chief underwriting officer managing the company’s underwriting and reinsurance functions.

Broad joined FM Global in 1995 as a loss prevention consultant in Brisbane, Australia. He then undertook various roles in Seattle, Melbourne, Singapore, and the UK before returning to Melbourne as a claims manager. He eventually led FM Global’s middle-market unit, AFM, in Sydney before being appointed as the vice president and manager of the company’s Australian operations.
 
Broad has a bachelor’s degree in mechanical engineering from Swinburne University, Melbourne, Australia, and a diploma of loss adjusting from the Australian and New Zealand Institute of Insurance and Finance (ANZIIF).

David M. Johnson, a specialist in forest products risk management, was the operations senior vice president of FM Global’s Atlanta operations.

Now, Johnson will take the role of senior vice president and chief client experience officer overseeing client experience, market relations, marketing, and the company’s business risk consulting group. He replaced George J. Plesce, who was recently named executive vice president, US, Latin America, and sales.

Since joining FM Global in 1990, Johnson has held various positions in the Seattle branch office, Dallas operations, Stockholm branch, and Singapore. He started his career as a loss prevention consultant and took engineering, client service, operations, and management roles of increasing responsibility, including regional senior vice president and manager of FM Global’s Asia operations.
 
Johnson holds a bachelor’s degree in civil engineering from Montana State University.
