Incoming is Stephanie Pestorich Manson (pictured above) in the role of chief client officer for management liability and head of directors’ and officers’ product, while also arriving is Jason Mills (pictured below) as wholesale leader for the UK Financial & Professional (FINPRO) practice.
Manson, who is due to join the firm later this year, will have oversight of the development of solutions within the practice and is to be based in London reporting to Beth Thurston, head of management liability of the UK FINPRO practice. She makes the switch from AIG where she leads the management liability team as head of commercial institutions. Her background also includes time spent at Aon, and as a US lawyer who qualified in England and Wales.
“Stephanie is one of the most respected D&O leaders in the London market and is a leading expert on management liability risk. Her technical expertise and client insight are second to none,” said Paul Denny, CEO of the UK FINPRO practice at Marsh JLT Specialty. “She will play a key role in developing Marsh’s management liability capabilities.”
Meanwhile, Mills is set to head up development of the UK FINPRO practice’s wholesale offering – meaning he will report to Denny and focus on the financial and professional risks placed in Lloyd’s.
“We’re delighted to welcome Jason back to the firm to drive our wholesale placement proposition in the UK FINPRO Practice,” added Denny. “His incisive understanding of the market, together with his extensive experience in financial lines and international placement, will be vital as we develop our wholesale solutions for financial lines.”
