Insurance firm Marsh JLT has appointed Hamish Roberts as its new global renewable energy leader, with his role set to come into effect on 1 January 2021.
Roberts has worked in various advisory roles in the international energy and power sector for over 35 years. He was previously power leader at Marsh JLT, and served as CEO of Aon’s global power specialty for six years, from 2008-2014.
In this newly created role, Roberts will develop the business’s renewable energy proposition and create new services and solutions that will support the fast-growing renewable energy industry globally, as well as enable traditional providers to continue their transition to renewable power sources.
Roberts said: “There is renewed political will as we approach the end of 2020 to move towards greater decarbonisation and more sustainable energy sources. As traditional energy companies continue to decarbonise their footprints, and market challengers seek to redefine the energy landscape.
“Marsh JLT specialty’s global renewable energy team will play a key role in supporting our clients and communities as they transition towards more sustainable and carbon-neutral futures.”
