Marsh, an insurance broker and risk adviser and a member of Marsh & McLennan, has appointed Tim Blakey as new regional head of its Aviation Practice for Asia, effective immediately.

Blakey will also join a newly-formed Asia Aviation executive team, chaired by executive managing director Steve Lloyd, which will include John Munro, Marsh’s Singapore-based Global Space Practice head.

Marsh Aviation and Aerospace Practice head Simon Harker said that Tim, John and Steve all have significant Asia experience, having resided in the region for extended periods.

"The greatest strength of our Aviation Practice is the depth and breadth of our talent. For Asia, we have over 50 risk professionals dedicated to serving the risk management and insurance needs of our market-leading and growing aviation client portfolio," Harker said.
