Marsh announces a new UK CEO of credit specialties | Insurance Business UK
Marsh has named Robert Perry as UK CEO, credit specialties, Marsh Specialty.
According to a release, this appointment is in addition to Perry’s current role as global political risk & structured credit leader. He will be based in London and report to Marsh Specialties global leader, credit specialties Nick Robson and Marsh Specialty UK CEO Dominic Samengo-Turner.
“While organisations remain firmly committed to their growth agendas and see opportunity for growth in a changing world, many are confronting highly complex geopolitical and economic risks that are impacting investment opportunities and challenging historic supply chains,” said Robson. “With his extensive global experience, our UK & International clients will benefit enormously from Rob’s leadership and expanded remit.”
As UK CEO of credit specialties, Perry will oversee the development of the credit specialties team’s risk and insurance services and solutions for both UK and international clients using the London insurance market.
“The investment strategies of many global financial corporations are becoming increasingly complex as a result of major geopolitical crises, such as the ongoing conflict between Russia and Ukraine, and the uncertain economic outlook,” commented Perry. “Marsh Specialty’s UK credit specialties team, working together with our global colleagues, is exceptionally well placed to support clients achieve sales growth, investment and capital management goals through its market leading services and solutions.”
Perry was appointed global political risk & structured credit leader in July 2022. He was previously Asia credit specialties leader, a role he held from 2019. Perry has over 30 years of experience in the political risk and structured credit insurance market, having worked in the UK, the US, and Asia. Prior to joining Marsh, Perry was with Willis Towers Watson for 20 years.
Last month, Marsh appointed Lorraine Stack, Stuart Herbert, and Nisala Weerasooriya as leader of Marsh Capital Solutions Ireland, international captive consulting practice leader, and leader of Marsh Captive Solutions Asia-Pacific, respectively.
