Lifestyle Article - Marsh appoint new CEO and Chairman for Ireland

Marsh, a global leader in insurance broking and innovative risk management solutions, today announced that it had appointed Joe Grogan as Executive Chairman of Marsh Ireland. It also announced that Patrick Howett, currently Managing Director of JLT Ireland, will become CEO of Marsh Ireland upon closing of the transaction between Marsh’s parent company, Marsh & McLennan Companies and JLT, which remains subject to the receipt of certain antitrust and regulatory approvals.

 Both Mr. Grogan and Mr. Howett will be based in Dublin and report to Chris Lay, CEO of Marsh UK & Ireland.

 A Marsh veteran of 28 years, Mr. Grogan has served in numerous senior leadership roles, and was appointed Chairman of Marsh Ireland in September 2018. He was previously CEO of Marsh’s Corporate Division in the UK & Ireland, which provides risk management advice, insurance brokerage and claims advocacy services to mid-size and large organisations.

 Mr. Howett has been with JLT since 1983, serving in a succession of senior positions before being appointed to his current role in 1995. Previously he worked in the audit and tax departments of PwC. He has also served as a Council Member of Brokers Ireland, the country’s leading representative body for insurance brokers.

 Mr. Grogan said: “Marsh is committed to providing our clients with a high-quality and seamless service. By strengthening our Irish operations, we will ensure we have the resources and talents required to support our clients as they navigate an increasingly complex risk landscape. I look forward to working with Pat and the highly-regarded JLT team.”

 Mr. Howett added: “This is an exciting time for the teams at both Marsh and JLT. The combined organisation will lead the market in providing exceptional client service and risk and insurance expertise.”
