Marsh, the world's leading insurance broker and risk advisor, today announced the appointment of Tony Ambrose as Deputy CEO, Aviation, Marsh JLT Specialty, effective immediately. Currently a Managing Director within Marsh's Aviation Practice in London, Mr Ambrose will remain based in London and report to Andy Smith, UK Chairman and CEO, Aviation.
In this newly created role, Mr Ambrose will support clients across the airline, aerospace, general aviation, and space industries. He will also develop the UK Aviation Practice's proposition as the sector continues to adapt to the challenges and opportunities created by the COVID-19 operating environment.
Mr Ambrose joined Marsh in November 2019 having previously worked for Swiss Re Corporate Solutions in various leadership roles from 2011, and serving as Head of Aviation from 2016-2019. Mr Ambrose has spent most of his 30-year career working in dedicated aviation underwriting and broking roles.
Mr Smith said: "COVID-19 is changing the way we live, work, and travel. As we approach the close of 2020, many organisations in the aviation sector are re-examining their business models in ways that were perhaps unthinkable at the start of the year. Tony's experience and leadership will be invaluable to our clients and colleagues as the sector responds to the pandemic."
Mr Ambrose added: "More than ever, aviation and aerospace firms require deep expertise and the latest specialist thinking on risk and insurance. I look forward to working with Andy and our experienced team, drawing on the expertise of our colleagues across Marsh as we help clients successfully navigate towards recovery."
