Marsh McLennan Agency has announced two appointments to new national leadership positions.

Denise Perlman has been promoted to president of national business insurance, while Kate Moher has been promoted to president of national employee health and benefits.

Perlman will be based in Richmond, Va., while Moher will be based in Minneapolis. Both will report to Bill Jeatran, president of Marsh McLennan Agency.

“With Kate and Denise at the helm, both practices have more than doubled their revenue,” Jeatran said. “Their unwavering commitment to innovation and keen ability to track industry trends have earned the trust of both our clients and colleagues alike. As they embark on their new roles as presidents of our business insurance and employee health and benefits divisions, respectively, we are excited to witness how their visionary leadership will elevate our offerings to new heights.”

Perlman joined the company in 2018 as executive vice president of business insurance and national partnerships. In that role, she worked closely with Marsh McLennan operating companies and Marsh McLennan Agency regional leaders to execute business insurance growth strategies, the company said.

Moher joined Marsh McLennan Agency in 2018 as national employee health and benefits practice leader. In that role, she set the practice’s long- and short-term strategic direction for organic growth. She also worked with her Marsh McLennan counterparts to drive innovation and execute key initiatives.

The promotions come at a time of growth for Marsh McLennan Agency. In January, the company acquired HMS Insurance Associates, one of the country’s largest independent insurance agencies. In December, it acquired Washington state-based McDonald Zaring Insurance.
