John Q. Doyle, Marsh
President and CEO
John Doyle was named CEO of Marsh in July 2017 after serving as the firm’s president for a little over a year. Doyle oversees Marsh’s worldwide businesses and operations, including property & casualty brokerage and specialty, digital technology platforms, and consulting practices. He is also a member of Marsh & McLennan Companies’ executive committee.
Doyle began his career at AIG as an underwriting trainee and soon realized his passion for the industry. Today, he says he “can’t imagine being in any other line of work … It’s definitely the only business for me.” He worked at AIG for 30 years in a variety of roles, including CEO of commercial insurance, president and CEO of property & casualty in the US, and president of National Union Fire Insurance Company.
In every position, Doyle says it was always about helping clients. “It’s the role insurance plays in the moments that matter for individuals and businesses alike,” he says. “We enable risk-taking. We can help mitigate risk and step in when losses do occur to help people get back on their feet. That’s what really motivates me.”
In addition to his work at Marsh, Doyle is a board member of the New York Police and Fire Widows’ and Children’s Benefit Fund, a trustee of the Inner-City Scholarship Fund and a former director of the American Insurance Association.
