Patston has management responsibility for insurance placement, product development and market relationships within Marsh’s networks operation, ensuring that its product offerings are aligned to member needs and deliver a competitive edge.
  • Craig Toyer has joined from Oval, where he was a placement manager for more than 13 years. Toyer will focus on developing Marsh ProBroker’s product suite and drive the creation of new, exclusive offerings with key insurers in the company market, Lloyd’s and the London market.
  • Rosanna Littleton joins from Marsh’s graduate programme and will support the team in developing its insurer and client relationships.

Marsh’s networks operation includes Marsh ProBroker, for independent brokers; Marsh Labyrinth, its commercial and personal lines network offering; and Marsh Connections, its niche distribution channel.
