Insurance and reinsurance broker Marsh has appointed Giampaolo Scarso to the newly created role of Client Advisory Services (CAS) Leader for its International division and Charlie Netherton as CAS Leader for UK & Ireland.
CAS is focused on delivering strategic advisory services, and includes Marsh’s global risk consulting, analytics, captive management, and claims advocacy support.
Scarso joined Marsh in 2007 and has since held a series of leadership roles at the company, most recently as CAS Leader for the Continental Europe, Middle East & Africa (CEMEA) and Latin America and Caribbean (LAC) regions.
In his new role, Scarso will be based in Milan and will report to Michael Poulos, Global Head of CAS at Marsh.
Netherton joined Marsh in 2016 to lead Marsh Risk Consulting (MRC) in the UK & Ireland, and will report to Scarso and to Chris Lay, Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Marsh UK & Ireland, in his new role. He will also join the UK & Ireland Executive Committee.
Poulos commented on the appointments: “CAS is a critical part of Marsh’s value proposition. Globally, clients expect us to be able to advise them on the most complex and challenging risks they face. Giampaolo and Charlie are both talented individuals who will provide clients with access to the full range of Marsh’s solutions and risk expertise.”
Scarso added: “I’m thrilled to lead CAS across Marsh’s International division. As the global risk landscape becomes increasingly volatile, it is critical that we provide clients – no matter where they are based or the risk issues they face – with strategic advice that is underpinned by powerful data, analytics, and technology. This will enable them to make better informed decisions and safeguard their futures with confidence.”
Netherton also stated: “I look forward to working with Giampaolo and our CAS colleagues across the UK and Ireland to develop and deliver market-leading solutions that clients expect from Marsh, and that contribute to their success.”
