Weil departure prompts CEO reshuffle at Marsh International

Marsh has reshuffled some of its senior leadership after Mark Weil decided to leave his position as CEO for the UK and Ireland to take on a new role within the private equity market. Chris Lay will step into the position left by the departing Weil. He will hold the dual roles of CEO for Marsh's UK and Ireland region and CEO of Marsh Ltd, reporting into Flavio Piccolomini, president of Marsh International. In taking on the new position, Lay will move back to London from Toronto where he has been serving the broker as president and CEO of Marsh Canada. The new role is the culmination of a long career in the industry. He has been with Marsh for 30 years, and during that time has held roles such as president of global captive solutions, head of global sales, business development leader for Marsh International and head of the corporate division in the UK. He sat on the board of Marsh Ltd between 2007 and 2016. Replacing Lay as president and CEO of Marsh Canada is Sarah Robson as his replacement, reporting into Martin South, president of Marsh US and Canada. Robson is currently a managing director within Marsh’s US business and serves as global relationship manager in its Insurer Consulting Group. She has over 25 years of experience at Marsh, holding increasingly critical client- and market-facing roles. Robson has experience in the Canadian marketplace, having started her career as an underwriter within the country at Chubb. She than became financial and professional practice leader and then specialties leader for Marsh Canada. John Doyle, president and CEO of Marsh, said: “We are excited to appoint Chris and Sarah to lead these important regions for us. They are talented, long-tenured Marsh executives who will bring a strong focus on our priorities of colleagues, clients and growth.” The new senior appointments come just days after Marsh appointed Christos Adamantiadis CEO for its newly-combined Middle East and Africa region.
