Marsh, the insurance broker and risk advisor and a wholly-owned subsidiary of Marsh & McLennan Companies, announced the appointment of David Batchelor as Head of its International Division, effective immediately.
The division comprises all of Marsh’s operations outside North America including the Europe; Middle East, Africa (EMEA); Latin America and Caribbean; Asia; and Pacific regions.
Batchelor will relocate to New York from London early next year. He will remain CEO of Marsh’s EMEA region through 2011, reporting to Peter Zaffino, President and CEO of Marsh, Inc.
He began his career in 1976 with Bowring, which was acquired by Marsh & McLennan Companies in 1980. Since then, Batchelor has held a variety of senior positions in the Asia-Pacific region, North America, Bermuda, and Europe before returning to Hong Kong to lead Marsh’s operations in Asia. He was appointed CEO of the broader Asia-Pacific region in 2006 and named CEO of Marsh’s EMEA region in April 2008
Zaffino described Marsh’s International Division as comprising “an exciting, dynamic, and diverse range of countries, indicating that Batchelor’s “deep expertise and broad global experience” makes him well suited to the new position.
Batchelor added: “Companies around the world are facing an increasingly broad and interconnected range of risks. With the tremendous strength that comes from the skills of our people, the depth of our client base and the scope of our geographic footprint, I look forward to leading our International team as we meet our clients’ evolving needs.”
