Marsh Captive Solutions announced with immediate effect the appointments of Will Thomas-Ferrand as Strategy & Operations leader, Europe, the Middle East, and Africa (EMEA) and Asia Pacific, and Stephen Portelli as head of office in Malta.
Both report to Ian Clancy, Marsh Captive Solutions’ practice leader, EMEA and Asia Pacific.
In this newly created role, Thomas-Ferrand will work closely with Ian Clancy and Chris Lay, president, Marsh Captive Solutions, to develop consistent policies, practices, and platforms across Marsh Captive Solutions. Thomas-Ferrand has relocated to the UK from Marsh Captive Solutions in Malta, where he was head of office from 2010. He previously led a team in Marsh’s captive operations in Bermuda.
Succeeding Thomas-Ferrand, Portelli will lead Marsh Captive Solutions’ operations on Malta, which provides strategic captive management advice to Marsh’s captive clients globally.
Portelli will be supported by David Galea as deputy head of office. Portelli and Galea have both worked for Marsh for nearly 10 years.
Chris Lay, president, Marsh Captive Solutions, commented: “More and more companies are viewing their captive insurance programs as strategically important corporate assets, as they raise the visibility of risk management costs and serve as an effective control tool. Will brings tremendous experience to this newly created role, and I look forward to working with him to deliver innovative captive insurance programs to our clients globally, regardless of their size, industry, or geography.”
