Marsh Commercial, a UK insurance broker and risk adviser, has announced six new appointments across its branches in Kirkwall, Elgin and Inverness.

The growth is a result of increased demand for guidance and support from businesses in a wide range of sectors in the region with their ongoing insurance and risk management requirements.

David Smith has been appointed regional account manager, reporting to regional business development director, Carolyn Oddy. He has been joined in the Inverness Branch by Ben Mackay and Craig Elrick, both account managers, and account executives, Rebecca Griggs and Michael Liang. In Kirkwall, Michael Gullion has joined as account manager, reporting to Kevin Hancock, senior vice president, Marsh Commercial.

All appointments are effective immediately.

Marsh Commercial has an established presence in Scotland with 350 colleagues and 11 offices from Orkney to Glasgow, including dedicated Claims Departments in Kirkwall, Elgin and Inverness.

Commenting on the growth, Kevin Hancock, Marsh Commercial, said: “Against a backdrop of a rapidly evolving risk environment, many, if not all, organisations in Scotland have had to rethink and refocus their efforts on how to stay afloat and grow. I am thrilled to welcome such a brilliant roster of talent to the business who I am confident will continue to help our clients succeed as we come out of this challenging period.”

Ben Bailey, CEO of Marsh Commercial in Scotland, added: “Over the last year, businesses in Scotland were consciously seeking expert advice on how to negotiate a way through the changing risk landscape and build resilience to ensure the long term prosperity of their operations.

“Thanks to our expertise and recent investments in Marsh Commercial across the Highlands and Islands, we were in a strong position to help them with this. I am delighted that the growth we experienced over 2020 enables us to continue to support organisations of all sizes across Scotland in a similar way.”
