Marsh has appointed Mike Rogers as new head of Marsh ProBroker, its UK community of independent brokers and Ian Reid to the newly-created role of commercial underwriting manager across its Network business. Both executives will be based in London.

Rogers will join from Towergate’s Broker Network where he was head of Business Development, managing the business development teams across both the Broker Network and countrywide networks.

Reid will also join from Towergate London Markets. In this role, Reid will be responsible for commercial binding authorities and open market wholesale for Marsh Labyrinth, Marsh’s commercial and personal lines network offering. He will also oversee product development for both Marsh Labyrinth and Marsh ProBroker.

Marsh UK Head of Networks Martyn Denney said, the firm is experiencing very strong and increasing interest in Marsh ProBroker, especially from independent firms that want to broaden their offerings to clients and boost their revenue.

“Our ambition for Marsh ProBroker and Marsh Labyrinth is to be a leading UK network player, with two very different propositions, by working with progressive and growing businesses, Denney said.
