Today's City Moves cover insurance, pensions and energy. Take a look at these movers and shakers:
Marsh, a global leader in insurance broking and innovative risk management solutions, has appointed Tom Colraine as a non-executive independent member of the board of directors of Marsh. During his career, Tom has held many senior roles in the insurance sector including chief operating officer and chief financial officer of AIG Europe from 2009-2014, which followed his time as non-executive director and chairman of the audit committee between 2007 and 2009. Prior to AIG Europe, Tom worked for Willis Group Holdings for nearly 20 years, from 1988-2007, where he held several senior leadership positions including CFO, vice chairman, and co-COO.
Profile Pensions has appointed Professor David Miles as non-executive director to support its UK growth ambitions. Miles, who was a member of the Bank of England’s Monetary Policy Committee 2009-2015 and chief UK economist at Morgan Stanley 2004-2009, is Professor of Financial Economics at Imperial College, London. Miles has joined Profile Pensions’ board and investment committee to support Profile Pensions in its goal of revolutionising the top-heavy pensions industry and providing access to quality advice for consumers previously left in the cold.
