UK-based insurance broker and risk advisor Marsh has appointed Keith Fenwick to lead its Norwich office.

In his role, Fenwick will oversee the management and development of Marsh’s current Norwich-based activities.

Fenwick, who has worked in the industry for more than 35 years, joins Marsh from JLT Re, where he was COO for five years.

From 2000 to 2005, Fenwick was UK CEO of Marsh’s sister company, Guy Carpenter, and was previously COO of Marsh’s UK Financial and Professional Practice.

Fenwick said that Norwich enjoys a hard-earned reputation among the insurance community for having an excellent blend of the people and skills required to deliver world-class insurance programmes.

Marsh CEO of UK and Ireland Martin South said that Fenwick’s deep knowledge of our organisation, combined with his impressive track record in managing businesses and improving operations and working practices, make him exceptionally well qualified to lead their Norwich office.
