New heads of US and International at Marsh McLennan

Marsh McLennan has appointed Pat Tomlinson as its new US and Canada CEO and Flavio Piccolomini as Marsh McLennan International CEO. They will report to Martine Ferland, Mercer president and CEO, and Martin South, Marsh president and CEO.

The two new leaders will head a “new collaborative effort to better serve clients and deliver innovative solutions at the intersections of the company’s four businesses” – Marsh, Mercer, Guy Carpenter and Oliver Wyman, a statement for the business said.

They will be responsible for working across businesses to address clients’ increasingly interconnected risk, strategy and people challenges and ensure they are operating efficiently in serving clients, it added.

Piccolomini will be based in London. He was most recently president of Marsh’s International Division, comprising all regions except the US and Canada. He brings over 30 years of experience in insurance brokerage and risk advisory. Tomlinson has over 25 years in professional services and joined Mercer in 2014 and has worked in various roles in its Health, Wealth and Career businesses. He was most recently its president for US and Canada. He will be based in New York.

“Often the most powerful innovations we deliver for clients come from colleague collaboration at the convergence of our businesses,” said Ferland. “Flavio and Pat will take these innovations to market to position clients for even greater success.”

South added: “Flavio and Pat will bring together the unique capabilities and solutions of our businesses to solve client challenges. Ultimately, this is all about delivering greater value for clients and driving growth.”
