Maurice Jeanbart takes up the new role

Marsh said Maurice Jeanbart has been appointed to the new role of chief financial officer for Asia.

Jeanbart will be based in Singapore and report dually to Alan Cheah, chief executive Asia and Robert Pietrucha, international director of finance.

Commenting on the appointment, Cheah said: ‘This new role is a testament to the region’s success, and will play a critical part as we continue to grow our franchise across our Asian markets.’

Jeanbart has over 18 years experience in all aspects of financial management in both mature and emerging markets. Recently, Jeanbart was the regional CFO for Marsh’s Central and Eastern European and the Commonwealth of Independent States countries. He spent his first ten years with Marsh’s sister company Mercer, primarily as the CFO of France.

Commenting on his appointment, Jeanbart said: ‘Asia is clearly a growth engine for Marsh globally, as the risk advisory and insurance broking industry takes hold and clients see the value Marsh offers.’
