Marsh has hired Ailsa King as chief client officer for the UK and Ireland.

King joins Marsh from Willis Towers Watson, where she worked for 25 years, and most recently served as head of UK client and business development.

In her new role she will report to UK and Ireland chief executive Mark Weil.

She is expected to take up the role in the second quarter of 2017.

King will work across Marsh’s operations and will also work closely with executives across Marsh and McLennan’s operating companies, Guy Carpenter, Mercer, and Oliver Wyman, on key client initiatives.

Weil said: “Ailsa’s significant industry experience and deep client relationships will ensure that our clients will continue to be at the centre of our strategic efforts and that their views will be represented at the highest level within our firm.”
