Marsh & McLennan Agency appoints new COO and president
Marsh & McLennan Agency (MMA), the middle market agency subsidiary of Marsh, has appointed Bill Jeatran as president, and Christina Mott as chief operating officer.
As president of MMA, Jeatran will focus on developing and advancing MMA’s strategic direction through acquisitions, client engagement, talent development, and scaling best practices.
He will continue to be based in Minneapolis, Minnesota, and succeeds Ben Allen who has left the firm. Formerly CEO of its upper Midwest region, Jeatran founded RJF Agencies in 1986 and was CEO until its acquisition by MMA in 2011.
As chief operating officer of MMA, Mott will be responsible for operational best practices, innovation, technology/digitisation initiatives, and product development working closely with regional MMA leaders and teams across MMC. Based in New York, Mott previously served as innovation leader, Marsh Global Risk & Specialties. Her prior roles at MMC include global head of innovation for MMC Corporate and Director of Solution Development for Oliver Wyman.
Both the executives will report to David Eslick, chairman and CEO of MMA.
Eslick commented: "Having built his own successful business before most recently leading MMA’s largest region, the upper Midwest, Bill is the ideal executive to help develop MMA’s strategic priorities for the future.
"Given her background in innovation, strategy, and operations, Christina will ensure that we execute on our ambitious plans to further expand on the MMA offering.
"These appointments further demonstrate MMA’s growth and maturity," Eslick added. 2By adding expertise from across the industry, we will further our ability to help our firms meet the increasingly complex needs of their clients."
Jeatran said: "From selling my business to MMA and then joining the leadership team, I have a first-hand appreciation for MMA’s dedication to acquiring and developing outstanding businesses while maintaining high standards for quality at all levels. I look forward to working with our firms and their leadership teams across the country to ensure MMA continues to enhance its market-leading proposition."
Mott added: "I’m pleased to join MMA and help continue its growth by driving innovation and leveraging new technologies with MMC’s global resources to meet clients’ needs."
