Marsh has announced the appointment of Rob Hale as London market leader for the firm’s Power & Renewable Energy practice.
Hale is expected to join the firm in the first quarter of 2021 and will report to Andrew Herring, Marsh’s Energy & Power CEO in the UK & Ireland.
He will be responsible for the business’s placement strategy with specialist power and renewable energy insurers in the London market on behalf of clients globally.
The former managing director of Aon’s Portfolio Solutions business will also be responsible for the creation of new services and solutions that support the fast-growing renewable energy industry.
Hale said: “Covid-19 has accelerated the energy agenda globally, with many countries reassessing their reliance on traditional sources amid a drop in demand during the pandemic.
“I look forward to playing a key role in working with Marsh’s clients and the London insurance market, as we shape the future direction of energy around the world.”
Herring said: “Marsh is committed to serving our power and renewable energy clients around the world as they continue to transition to clean energy and renewable resources, such as solar and offshore wind technologies.
“Rob, with his specialist market knowledge and deep understanding of the challenges and opportunities our clients face, is ideally placed to lead the business’s London market placement strategy and assist in the development of the next generation of power supply.”
