Who were the biggest movers and shakers this year, and why?
As 2022 draws to a close, we look back on a year in which there were some major leadership shake-ups and big personnel moves at some of the largest insurers, reinsurers and brokers. In the past 12 months many experienced leaders launched their own startups and insurtechs and moved to scoop up some of the top talent from the market.
While the year brought in a new wave of challenges for talent acquisition and retention, many businesses sought new leadership and increased hiring to redress the struggles and slippage seen during the COVID-19 pandemic. The hiring was broadly strategic, albeit tipping towards insurance carriers from agencies and brokers, hunting for niche skillsets in areas that require deep expertise.
Marsh CEO Dan Glaser said: “When we hire, it’s not ‘what is your book of business?’. It’s ‘what is your capacity, what do you specialise in?’ … not just somebody who can pull in an account or two.”
