continues to move around the chess pieces on the board, announcing the appointment of a new president for one of its major divisions.
Robert Bentley will head up its U.S. and Canada Division, and will be responsible for the oversight of the division, which comprises Marsh’s U.S. core brokerage, Canada, and insurance services businesses.
“Rob brings a diverse background and strong track record of driving business growth and delivering optimal performance to his new role,” said Peter Zaffino, president and CEO of Marsh. “I’m excited about the prospects of him leading the division and working with our business leaders to consistently deliver industry-leading solutions that help our clients thrive.”
Bentley’s appointment follows the announcement last week that John Drzik will join Marsh on January 1, 2014, as president of Global Risk and Specialties. Like Bentley, he will also report directly to Zaffino.
Drzik is currently chairman and CEO of Oliver Wyman Group.
Bentley rejoined Marsh & McLennan Companies in February following five years at Risk Management Solutions, where he served as COO and a board member. Prior to that, he spent 17 years at Guy Carpenter
, where he held several executive positions, including global COO and head of Global Analytics. He most recently served as president and CEO of Marsh’s Insurance Services Businesses unit.
