Willis Group Holdings announced the appointment of Mike Lack as an Executive Director of its London-based downstream energy team, effective immediately. He will report to Justin Blackmore, Managing Director of Willis Energy Downstream.
Lack has over 40 years experience in the insurance industry most recently as a Board Director of United Insurance Brokers (UIB) and Managing Director of its Energy and Property/Liability division.
He began his career in 1970 at Wigham Richardson & Bevington Ltd before moving to Lavy Hancox & Carter. Following a ten-year spell at Cayser Steel Bowater, during which time he relocated to Oman, he joined Marsh & McLennan Middle East Ltd. in 1985 to form a Non Marine Energy, Property and Casualty Division. Lack was then involved in the initial formation of UIB and subsequent purchase of Marsh’s Middle East operation. He worked for UIB for 25 years.
Lack has handled major downstream energy programs around the world from regions as diverse as North Africa, Europe and Asia.
Blackmore commented: “”We are delighted to welcome someone of Mike’s pedigree and experience to Willis Energy. His vast experience in handling mega oil and gas programs will be invaluable to our downstream energy team.”
