Marsh has named Christos Adamantiadis (pictured) as the chief executive officer for Continental Europe, replacing Siegmund Fahrig, who is set to retire at the end of this year.
Starting January 1, Adamantiadis will oversee the management and development of Marsh’s risk advisory and insurance broking operations across Continental Europe. He will be based in Zurich and report to Flavio Piccolomini, the president of Marsh’s international division.
“Christos is a highly experienced leader who excels in developing teams, services, and solutions across multiple geographies that benefit our clients and deliver growth,” Piccolomini said. “Under his leadership, our Continental Europe region will be well-placed to support clients in this rapidly-changing and often volatile risk landscape. On behalf of Marsh, I would like to thank Siegi for his service and extend our best wishes as he embarks on this next chapter in his life.”
Adamantiadis was the chief executive officer of UAE-based Oman Insurance Company for three years before he joined Marsh as the chief executive officer of the Middle East and Africa region in 2018.
He also spent 20 years at AIG in various management roles, including overseeing its operations in Central and Eastern Europe, Russia, Turkey, the Middle East, and North Africa.
“Clients across Continental Europe are facing some of the greatest economic and geopolitical challenges of their time,” Adamantiadis said. “As risk advisors, our role is to help them find the right solutions that lead to stability and growth. I look forward to working with our strong regional team as we work together to enable our clients to manage their risks effectively and continue to thrive.”
