“Clients and colleagues will benefit significantly from Kevin’s experience, knowledge, and leadership as we continue to develop services and solutions that provide public entities with the protection they require to operate successfully and cost-effectively in today’s more complex risk environment,” Alpaugh said.

“Public sector entities often must balance pursuing opportunities with addressing needs, such as aging infrastructure, disaster preparedness, law enforcement liability, cyber risk preparedness, and more recently pandemic resiliency,” Bryant said. “I’m excited to lead Marsh’s distinguished team of public sector risk experts and help these clients tackle these challenges with cost-effective risk management solutions using industry-leading analytics.”
