Marsh taps new digital asset, D&O product leaders

Insurance broker and risk advisor Marsh has announced new leadership appointments within its US financial institutions (FI) and financial and professional liability (FINPRO) practices.

Jacqueline Quintal (pictured above), currently a managing director in Marsh’s US FI practice, will take the additional role of US digital asset leader. In that role, she will oversee the delivery of risk transfer services to a broad range of firms working with digital assets and blockchain technology. Quintal is based in New York and will report to Alex deLaricheliere, leader of Marsh’s US financial institutions and professional services industry practice.

“Jackie brings a wealth of experience in digital asset risk transfer, having advised some of the most established financial institutions and early-state fintech, insurtech, cryptocurrency, and blockchain firms,” deLaricheliere said. “She is the ideal person to lead Marsh’s US digital asset efforts forward, working across Marsh to deliver a broad risk understanding and strategic risk transfer solutions to traditional and evolving financial institutions.”

Marsh has also appointed Matthew McLellan as US directors and officers product leader. In his new role, McLellan (pictured below) will lead Marsh’s D&O strategy for clients and act as the D&O liaison with insurers on new forms, endorsements, and manuscript wordings. He will also work with Marsh’s panel counsel. McLellan joined Marsh in 2018 as a FINPRO senior client advisor after spending eight years as a professional liability coverage attorney. He is based in Washington, DC, and will report to Carole Lynn Proferes, US FINPRO advisory and industry leader for Marsh.
