Marsh has announced a series of appointments including Mark Walters as managing director within the UK Aviation Practice, Paul Rogers as senior vice president and Andrew Walker as senior vice president within the UK Airline team.

Walters joins the business with immediate effect and will report to Andy Smith, UK chairman and CEO, Aviation, Marsh JLT Specialty.

Based in London, he will provide senior insurance and risk advisory services to Marsh JLT Specialty's UK aviation and aerospace clients, which includes many of the sector's leading airlines, airports, manufacturers, and ancillary providers.

Walters was previously employed by Marsh from 1990-2009 and returns to the business from Gallagher, where he was an executive director in the Aviation Division for five years.

Paul Rogers will join the business on 1 November 2020 reporting to David George, UK managing director and product line leader for Airlines. He will be responsible for supporting the development of the UK Practice’s sales proposition.

He brings more than four decades of insurance industry experience to the firm and most recently served as a director in Gallagher's Aviation division and was the founding partner and managing director of dedicated aviation and aerospace insurance broker ARAIC.

Additionally, Walker will join Marsh in March 2021 and report to Steve Haslam, senior vice president, UK Aviation, Marsh JLT Specialty.

He has worked in the aviation industry for over 25 years and was most recently a divisional director at UIB for 16 years, specialising in airline portfolios.

Commenting on the appointments, Smith said: “The global aviation industry has been particularly impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic; many organisations are re-evaluating their business models and are seeking new ways to build their resilience to future shocks. Mark, Paul and Andrew will play key roles in supporting our UK clients as the sector works towards recovery.”

Walters added: “I look forward to working with Marsh’s colleagues in the UK and globally to further develop our risk and insurance capabilities in the aviation and aerospace sector, and assist clients in responding to the challenges they face during this difficult time.”
