Global insurance brokerage Marsh has announced new leadership appointments within its US Financial Institutions and Financial and Professional Liability (FINPRO) practices.
Jacqueline Quintal, currently a Managing Director within Marsh’s US Financial Institutions Practice, has been named to the additional role of US Digital Asset Leader where she will oversee the delivery of risk transfer solutions to a broad range of firms working with digital assets and blockchain technology.
Quintal will be based in New York and will continue to report to Alex deLaricheliere, Marsh’s US Financial Institutions and Professional Services Industry Practice Leader.
Marsh also has appointed Matthew McLellan US Directors and Officers Liability (D&O) Product Leader.
In his new role he will lead Marsh’s D&O strategy for clients and act as the D&O liaison with insurers on new forms, endorsements, and manuscript wording and also with Marsh’s panel counsel.
McLellan joined Marsh in 2018 as a FINPRO Senior Client Advisor after eight years as a professional liability coverage attorney.
He will be based in Washington DC, reporting to Carole Lynn Proferes, Marsh’s US FINPRO Advisory and Industry Leader.
deLaricheliere commented: “Jackie brings a wealth of experience in digital asset risk transfer having advised some of the most established financial institutions and early stage fintech, insurtech, cryptocurrency, and blockchain firms.
“She is the ideal person to lead Marsh’s US digital asset efforts forward working across Marsh to deliver broad risk understanding and strategic risk transfer solutions to traditional and evolving financial institutions.”
Proferes added: “Our clients continue to face very challenging D&O trading conditions and need a firm with deep expertise in the D&O insurance product and marketplace. Matt’s technical acumen and legal background combined with his unbridled passion for the subject matter make him a perfect fit for this critical role.”
