Insurance broker and risk advisor, Marsh, has announced the appointment of Charles Sincock as ESG Strategy Leader within its UK Advisory business.
Sincock joins Marsh from Capco where he was the global ESG delivery lead and UK ESG lead. He began his financial services career as an M&A banker at Dresdner Kleinwort and Bank of America. He has also worked in green infrastructure and served as an officer in the British Army, and is a chartered mechanical engineer.
Marsh states that in the new role, Sincock will design and implement strategic solutions for the latest ESG challenges facing clients, working with the existing ESG teams across Marsh McLennan.
Additionally, he will lead the team within UK Advisory to help create risk management strategies which build clients’ resilience in the face of new and evolving ESG-related exposures, enabling them to access enhanced risk and insurance benefits.
Based in London, Sincock will report to Nigel Somerville, Head of Advisory, UK & Ireland, Marsh, who commented on the appointment, stating, “With an expanding scope of stakeholders requiring greater transparency over how businesses are addressing climate-related and sustainability goals, robust ESG strategies are critical for organisations seeking to gain a competitive advantage and secure optimal terms from the insurance market.
“Charles’s longstanding experience will be invaluable as we guide clients on their ESG strategies.”
Sincock added, “Marsh is committed to building novel data-driven ESG initiatives, particularly those that help highlight where gaps exist in organisations’ strategies. With increasing reporting and governance obligations, ESG will stay top of the agenda for boardrooms and risk managers for the foreseeable future.
“In this uncertain operating environment, I look forward to leading the team at Marsh to help clients be on the front foot when it comes to managing their ESG risks and enabling them to succeed.”
