Barr Joins Marsh’s UK Environmental Practice

February 7, 2008

Marsh has appointed David Barr as a Managing Consultant in its UK Environmental Practice. He joins Marsh’s London office from Willis, where he headed up its UK Environmental Team.

The bulletin described Barr as a “qualified geologist and hydrogeologist,” with 17 years of experience in oil and gas exploration, environmental technical consultancy and environmental insurance broking. It also noted that he has “worked with property investment and development funds, waste management companies, chemical manufacturing firms, and major oil and gas exploration and production businesses and retailers.”

Cliff Warman, Environmental Practice Leader for Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) at Marsh noted that Barr’s presence would “both strengthen and broaden the significant skills and experience of our Environmental teams in London and across Europe.”

Barr stressed that “Environmental concerns remain high on boardroom agendas in 2008, as firms struggle to stay abreast of new legislation and meet their environmental obligations. With a range of stakeholders paying attention, firms are keenly aware of the need to be proactive. By placing environmental risk management at the heart of their business strategy, firms can tackle these issues head on, be more effective and ultimately gain a competitive edge.”
