Nick Frankland has been promoted to CEO of European Operations at Guy Carpenter

Guy Carpenter has announced a number of key executive appointments to its European and Asia Pacific broking operations.

Nick Frankland, formerly CEO of UK Operations, has been appointed to the newly created role of CEO of European Operations, responsible for Guy Carpenter’s broking operations across both Continental Europe and the UK.

Andrew Marcell will continue in his role as CEO of Continental European Operations, alongside his new responsibilities as global business development leader, and will report to Frankland.

Mark Hewett has been named chairman of UK Operations.

“Working closely with Andrew, Mark and our broking teams across the UK and Continental Europe, Nick will provide outstanding leadership in integrating our broking operations across the region and delivering superior solutions to our clients,” said David Spiller, president and CEO of Guy Carpenter.

In addition to the changes in Europe, Guy Carpenter announced several organisational changes within the Asia Pacific region.

Effective 1 May 2008, James Nash will assume the role of CEO of Asia Pacific Operations from Martin Burrough, who will retire from Guy Carpenter on 1 December 2008, following 16 years of service.

Spiller added, “Martin has been a strong leader during his tenure with the firm and will be a great resource to James as he transitions into his new role. Through our strong Asia Pacific management team, we will continue to execute our global strategic plan and build our presence in the region to position Guy Carpenter as the premier risk and reinsurance intermediary.”
