Marsh has appointed Mark Mansfield as head of the Manchester office, giving him responsibility for corporate clients in the region.
Marsh’s corporate division provides insurance broking, risk advisory and claims services to a range of organisations, from growing local businesses to multinational companies, across the UK.
In his new role as head of office in Manchester, Mansfield assumes overall responsibility for Marsh’s corporate clients in one of the firm’s largest regional UK offices outside of London.
Mansfield joined Marsh in 2015 and previously focused on bid management and new business development.
Before joining Marsh, he held several senior roles at Arthur J Gallagher. Mansfield first worked for Marsh from 2001 to 2008, after securing a place in Manchester on the firm’s graduate programme.
Commenting on Mansfield’s appointment, Allan McPherson, regional managing director for the North of England and Scotland in the corporate division, said: “With his specialist industry knowledge and regional insight, Mark is well-placed to lead Marsh’s Manchester office and deliver the best of the firm to our corporate clients across the region. I look forward to working with him as he further develops Marsh’s business operations in Manchester.”
Mansfield added: “Greater Manchester is a great place to grow or start a business. However, many organisations are faced with an increasingly complex array of risks which are being created by wider economic, geopolitical and technological pressures. I’m excited to take the helm of Marsh’s office in my home city. Aside from time away at university, I’ve lived and worked in Manchester all my life and am proud to be part of its thriving business community.”
