Roy White


International Insurance Brokers Association (LIIBA)

Roy is Chairman of the specialties business in the UK at Marsh. He assumed this leadership position in January 2018, having been the Chief Executive Officer for the preceding five years. This division embraces the aviation, construction, real estate and surety, FINPRO (financial lines), marine and international property and casualty practices. His career began at Sedgwick Group (a predecessor firm to Marsh) on its UK trainee programme. Following a period in which he handled the general insurance requirement for major UK corporate clients, he began specialising in professional indemnity insurance, which, in turn, led to a broader exposure to financial lines. His managerial positions at Sedgwick (prior to the acquisition by Marsh) included oversight of the UK claims operation, specialty sales and the professional and financial institution industry group. Having been involved in financial lines business for over 25 years, he took an increasing number of broader management roles within Marsh Europe, including sitting on the Marsh Europe executive committee in 2012 representing the specialty and Nordic businesses. He takes the lead on a number of UK and international client relationships in the professional services and corporate sectors. He is a Director of Marsh, Chairman of Marsh Services, Chairman of the London & International Insurance Brokers Association (LIIBA) and sits on the board of the London Market Group (LMG).
