Peter Box to chair broker's audit committee

Marsh has appointed Peter Box, a former partner at PricewaterhouseCoopers, as a non-executive independent director on the firm’s UK board of directors.

Box, who retired from PwC on 30 June, will chair Marsh’s audit committee.

Box joins Marsh following a distinguished 39-year career at PwC, where he was an audit and business advisory partner to a broad range of companies, from large global groups to specialist national enterprises. Through his focus on the insurance industry he has developed an understanding of the major issues affecting the sector, both in the UK and around the world.

Marsh UK chief executive Martin South said: “Peter's exceptional market knowledge and international perspective, combined with his broad experience of regulatory and governance matters, will be of enormous benefit to Marsh.

"He will play a leading role in ensuring our governance structures, processes and risk framework are first class, while working closely with the UK management team to identify and capitalise on the extensive growth opportunities available to us.
