Global (re)insurer Marsh JLT Specialty announces the appointments of Joanne Silberberg and Dan Gumsley within the Renewable Energy team.

Silberberg joins as Canadian renewable energy leader. In this newly created role, she will report to Richard Doherty, head of Marsh JLT Specialty, Canada and Amy Barnes, energy & power practice leader, US and Canada.

She first joined Marsh in 2004 as part of the graduate programme and has since then has held numerous roles within Australia, primarily focusing on the energy & power sector.

In January of this year, Silberberg moved to Calgary to be part of the Energy & Power team.

Gumsley joins the Renewable Energy team at Marsh JLT Specialty as an account manager focusing on growing the offshore wind market in the UK. In his new role, Gumsley will report to Hamish Roberts, power leader.

He brings more than 20 years’ industry experience, both as a broker and an in-house insurance manager. He joins Marsh from one of the leading offshore wind developers in Europe.

Andrew George, global head of Energy & Power, Marsh JLT Specialty, commented: “As the world begins to emerge from lockdown restrictions, many countries are considering how, as a consequence of the pandemic, they may accelerate their decarbonisation programmes to take advantage of the recent lower demand for traditional power sources and petroleum.

“Depending on the location, the renewable energy sector can offer countries flexible, reliable, and proven technologies – including solar, onshore wind, offshore wind, bio-mass, hydro and battery power.

“Working as part of our global Renewable Energy team, Joanne and Dan will play key roles in delivering the services and solutions to support our energy clients in Canada and the UK as they transition towards more sustainable and carbon-neutral futures.”
