Meet Catherine

As a senior client executive and sales producer, I manage client relationships for several large accounts — public entities, publically traded, privately held, and multinational corporations — in our Corporate and Risk Management segments.

I help ensure Marsh builds sustainable, mutually-beneficial business partnerships with and delivers on our day-to-day client service commitment, continually grows our partnerships, and deftly manages market relationships to achieve optimal results for our clients​​​​​​​. Additionally, I work with account service teams and subject matter experts to develop services and customized solutions to meet client goals.

My goal is to make sure the full power of Marsh and our Marsh McLennan sister companies is unleashed to proactively address emerging issues facing clients.

What excites you about working at Marsh?

Since joining Marsh over 16 years ago, I have been excited about the extraordinary talent and expertise of Marsh colleagues, the spirit of collaboration, teamwork, and support among colleagues and offices, and our firm's ability to lead the industry in developing innovative, creative products, tools, and solutions with thought leadership that speaks to the most pressing challenges and needs faced by our client’s and prospects. 

More recently, over the past four to five years, even in a pandemic, it’s wonderful to see the significant strides being made with the accelerated efforts and investments in the areas of diversity and inclusion, ESG, social impact program, and professional development programs, available to colleagues. Sustaining the diversity and inclusion momentum is critical to achieving greater bottom-line results and empowering all colleagues to engage, flourish, and perform at the highest level.    

Marsh has further differentiated itself as a firm where a person can have a fulfilling, long-term, successful career, not just a job. In my tenure with Marsh, I've been able to move from only generating new and expanded business to building and managing a book of accounts comprised of recognized brand logos that cross several industry verticals, including public entity, higher education, construction, real estate, retail wholesale, transportation, and manufacturing, to name a few. Throughout, I’ve had the opportunity to collaborate with incredibly talented, diverse account teams. The possibilities for attaining even higher heights are endless!

What do you do to make others feel included? 

I work to be very intentional, keeping a mindset determined to make others feel included – reaching out, welcoming, speaking to, acknowledging, being kind, showing that I value, respect, and appreciate others, and embracing the rich diversity represented at Marsh. 

As a co-chair of the Pacific North Partnership Diversity & Inclusion Leadership Committee and co-leader of the West Zone African Heritage Colleague Resource Group (AHCRG), I actively seek ways to raise awareness and connect colleagues through educational, webinar, and cultural events. I believe when we embrace and celebrate differences, it creates an environment where all colleagues feel valued, empowered, and able to perform at optimal levels.
