In his new role, Mula will be tasked to support McGill and Partners’ growth trajectory, with a particular focus on the specialist broker’s US plans around talent, clients, markets and intermediary partners.

Speaking on the appointment, Steve McGill, founder and chief executive of McGill and Partners, said: “I am personally delighted to welcome Warren to the team. His extraordinary connections with the client and carrier community globally and his broad leadership capabilities aligns perfectly with the firm and our ambitions.”

Mula added: “I am truly excited to join McGill and Partners at this inflexion point in our industry.

“The opportunity to work alongside like-minded practitioner colleagues to deliver a whole firm solution to clients’ needs is a unique opportunity and one that I simply could not let pass.”
