Moczarski named chairman of MMC International

Guy Carpenter chief executive Alex Moczarski has taken the additional role of chairman of Marsh & McLennan Companies International.

MMC International houses the non-US business of Guy Carpenter’s parent group, Marsh & McLennan Companies (MMC). MMC also owns insurance broker Marsh and consulting businesses Mercer and Oliver Wyman.

Moczarski took the helm of Guy Carpenter from Peter Zaffino last year after Zaffino was named chief executive of Marsh. Moczarski was previously chief executive of Marsh’s Europe, Middle East and Africa operations.

“I am excited to be taking on the role of chairman of Marsh & McLennan Companies International,” Moczarski said. “I look forward to working with our executive team and local country corporate officers to leverage the company’s impressive international footprint to strengthen and grow our global market position.”
