Former Bermuda executive Batchelor to head Marsh division

Former Bermuda-based insurance executive David Batchelor has been appointed the head of Marsh’s international division, with immediate effect.

The division comprises all of Marsh’s operations outside of North America including the Europe; Middle East, Africa (EMEA); Latin America and Caribbean; Asia; and Pacific regions.

Mr Batchelor, who will relocate to New York from London early next year, will remain CEO of Marsh’s EMEA region through 2011. He will report to Peter Zaffino, president and CEO of Marsh Inc.

Mr Zaffino said: “Marsh’s international division comprises an exciting, dynamic, and diverse range of countries. With his deep expertise and broad global experience, I am delighted to have a leader such as David to guide our International business into a new era. With more than 30 years in insurance and risk management consulting, David is respected and trusted by colleagues, clients, and industry peers alike.”

Mr Batchelor said: “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.”

Mr Batchelor began his career in 1976 with Bowring, which was acquired by Marsh & McLennan Companies in 1980. Since then, he 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.
