Currently CEO of Marsh Australia, Leney will assume his new role on Sept. 1, 2020 and report to David Jacob, CEO of Marsh Asia, and Nick Harris, CEO of Marsh Pacific. He will continue to be based in Sydney.
In addition, Leney will serve as country corporate officer for Marsh & McLennan in Australia, working closely with executives across Marsh, Guy Carpenter, Mercer and Oliver Wyman on key client and corporate initiatives.
