Marsh Appoints Leaders For US and Canada Energy and Power

New York   |   August 20, 2019

Marsh, the world’s leading insurance broker and risk adviser, today announced new leadership in its US and Canada Energy and Power Practice.

Amy Barnes has been appointed to the role of US and Canada Energy Power Leaders reporting to Pat Donnelly, Head of US and Canada at Marsh JLT Specialty, and Andrew George, Global Head of Energy and Power.

Earlier this year, Ms. Barnes relocated to Houston from London to assume the role of Deputy Energy and Power and Integration Leader responsible for helping to shape the newly formed Marsh JLT Specialty Energy and Power team. Prior to that role, Ms. Barnes was Chief Client Officer for Marsh UK’s Global Energy and Power business. She joined Marsh in 2002 as an environmental insurance broker.

In addition, Brad Vescarelli has joined Marsh as Energy and Power Leader for Canada reporting to David Richards, Head of Marsh JLT Specialty in Canada, and Ms. Barnes. He is based in Marsh’s Calgary, Alberta Canada, office.

Mr. Vescarelli joins Marsh from CES Energy Solutions where he served as Legal and HR Director, with responsibility for the company’s risk management and insurance program. Prior to that role he spent seven years at Marsh Canada serving as an energy broker and client executive. He began his career as a litigator.

Commenting on the appointments, Martin South, President of Marsh US and Canada, said: “Today’s energy and power companies face significant and wide-ranging risks and require an insurance broker that can help navigate the challenges impacting their operational and financial success. Marsh is committed to delivering superior transactional and advisory services to the US and Canada energy and power market, and under the leadership of Amy and Brad, we will enhance our ability to do so.”
