Marsh beefs up its digital assets and D&O coverage with two promotions
Marsh has named Jacqueline Quintal as US digital asset leader, and Matthew McLellan as US directors and officers liability (D&O) product leader.
Quintal is managing director in Marsh’s US financial institutions (FI) practice and adds the new responsibilities to her existing role. She oversees the delivery of risk transfer solutions to a broad range of firms working with digital assets and blockchain technology and is based in New York. She continues to report to Alex deLaricheliere, Marsh’s US FI and financial and professional liability (FINPRO) practices leader.
McLellan leads Marsh’s D&O strategy for clients and acts as the D&O liaison with insurers on new forms, endorsements, and manuscript wording, and also with Marsh’s panel counsel. McLellan joined Marsh in 2018 as a FINPRO senior client advisor after eight years as a professional liability coverage attorney. He is based in Washington DC and reports to Carole Lynn Proferes, Marsh’s US FINPRO advisory and industry leader.
deLaricheliere highlighted Quintal’s experience in digital asset risk transfer, having advised various well established financial institutions and early stage fintech, insurtech, cryptocurrency, and blockchain firms. “She is the ideal person to lead Marsh’s US digital asset efforts forward working across Marsh to deliver broad risk understanding and strategic risk transfer solutions to traditional and evolving financial institutions,” he said.
Proferes added: “Our clients continue to face very challenging D&O trading conditions and need a firm with deep expertise in the D&O insurance product and marketplace.”
