FM Global has announced two senior-level moves, with Philip Johnson (pictured above) promoted to the newly created role of chief learning officer and Christopher Dempsey succeeding Johnson as senior vice president and EMEA division manager.
Johnson, who has been with FM Global for 25 years, will lead the development of the FM Global Academy, the company’s learning arm that provides in-person and on-demand programmes to meet the business and development needs of its employees and clients. He is based in London.
Since joining FM Global in 1995 as a consultant engineer, Johnson held various leadership roles across client service, engineering, business process improvement and operations. Prior to that, Johnson worked on nuclear power station design and held project management roles in large infrastructure projects across Europe. He holds a bachelor’s degree in civil engineering from the University of Newcastle-upon-Tyne, and completed postgraduate studies at Luxembourg School of Business.
Dempsey (pictured above), was previously operations senior vice president and Chicago operations manager, before succeeding Johnson to head FM Global’s business in the EMEA region. He is based in Luxembourg and is responsible for operations and strategic direction across EMEA, including underwriting, client service and engineering.
In 2001, Dempsey joined FM Global as a customer service consultant before becoming a senior consultant engineer and then assuming various engineering and underwriting management roles of increasing responsibility, including a role as Boston operations branch manager.
He holds a bachelor’s degree in fire and safety engineering from Eastern Kentucky University, USA.
