His extensive expertise and insight of our industry and the regulatory environment will be invaluable as we continue to support our clients and colleagues, and expand our business across the UK and Ireland.


“On behalf of the board, I would like to extend our thanks to Jane for her tremendous leadership, wisdom, guidance and support over the past 10 years, both as Chairman and as a non-executive director.”

Colraine added: “Since joining the board, I’ve been impressed by how Marsh continually strives to deliver ground-breaking solutions that help clients of all sizes and sectors mitigate risk and continue to thrive.

“This is especially evidenced by the support offered to clients, colleagues, and communities during the COVID-19 pandemic. I look forward to working with the leadership team as we continue to nurture our talent and develop the UK and Ireland business.”
