Marsh, the insurance broker and risk adviser, announced the appointment of Mike Johnson as chairman of the UK Construction, Infrastructure & Surety Practice, Marsh JLT Specialty.
Effective immediately, Johnson succeeds Tim Smith who is retiring after more than 30 years in the business.
Based in London, Johnson reports to Scot Peachey, CEO, UK Construction, Infrastructure & Surety Practice, Marsh JLT Specialty.

Commenting on Mr. Johnson’s appointment, Peachey said: “With his extensive experience in the national and international construction industry, Mike brings a tremendous amount of knowledge to this role at a time when the sector is navigating its path to recovery from COVID-19. On behalf of the business, we also thank Tim for his contribution and dedication over the last three decades and wish him a happy and fulfilling retirement.”
