Insurance broker Marsh has named Dean Klisura as head of the firm’s newly created Global Placement organization. Klisura will oversee all of Marsh’s insurance placement activities, including wholesale, retail, specialty, quote share, and other placement facilities, which have been brought together under one organization.
Since joining Marsh more than 20 years ago, Klisura had held several senior roles including global leader of Marsh’s FINPRO Practice and global placement leader for FINPRO. Prior to this new role, he served as U.S. Risk Practices and Specialties leader. Klisura will retain his current responsibilities until a successor is named.
In addition, Marsh said Christopher Lang has been appointed U.S. Placement leader. In this new role, Lang will execute the U.S. placement strategy in alignment with the new Global Placement organization, which oversees all retail, wholesale, and specialty placement across the firm. Additionally, he will lead Marsh’s U.S. Innovation Council, which creates new products and increased capacity for clients in key risk areas. Prior to his new role, Lang was Marsh’s global relationship officer for American International Group, following several years as US FINPRO Placement Practice leader.
Lang will report to Klisura. Klisura will report to John Drzik, president of Global Risk and Specialties at Marsh.
Both appointments are effective immediately.
