Marsh announced the appointment of Martin South as president for the US and Canada division. 

Effective from 1 September 1 and based in New York, South will report to Marsh president John Doyle, and will oversee Marsh’s US core brokerage, businesses in Canada, and portfolio of US businesses encompassing industries and practices. 

A veteran insurance industry executive with 30 years of global operating experience, South previously served as Marsh Europe chief executive, and prior to that, as Marsh UK & Ireland chief executive. 

Doyle said: “In today’s evolving and dynamic environment, our clients rely on their trusted advisors to help them navigate the rapidly shifting landscape. Martin’s appointment reflects Marsh’s continued commitment to seasoned regional leadership and delivering cutting-edge capabilities to help our clients address the opportunities of the day.” 

In connection with this new appointment, Marsh’s businesses in Asia-Pacific and the Middle East, which previously reported to South, have been realigned into three regional units: Marsh Asia, under David Jacob; Marsh Pacific, which will continue under the lead of Scott Leney, and Marsh Middle East, under Stephen Lundin. All three will report to Doyle.
