Marsh has announced the appointment of Louise Nevill as chief executive officer for Marsh JLT Specialty’s UK marine & cargo business.
In her new role, Nevill will assume overall responsibility for one of the world’s largest marine and cargo insurance broking teams, consisting of over 200 colleagues in London, Norwich, and Birmingham. She is expected to join the firm early next year and will report to Paul Moody, UK chief executive officer, Marsh JLT Specialty and Marcus Baker, global head of marine & cargo, Marsh JLT Specialty.
Baker said that Nevill’s depth of experience and relationships in London and beyond are a perfect fit for our UK marine business.
“She will be instrumental in delivering the risk and insurance services our clients need to navigate the increasingly challenging risks they now face,” he said.
For his part, Moody expressed delight that one of the marine insurance industry’s “most respected practitioners” will be joining the firm.
“Her industry, knowledge, and insight will be invaluable to our clients and colleagues as we continue to build out our proposition to meet the changing needs of the marine industry.”
Nevill joins Marsh from Gard, where she led the marine underwriting team. She was previously the director of underwriting at WRB Underwriting, Lloyd’s Syndicate 1967, where she established the marine business from scratch in 2010.
