Marsh Appoints UK Cyber Leader

Marsh has announced the appointment of Kelly Butler as UK cyber leader, effective October 2023. Based in London, Butler will report to Beth Thurston, CEO of UK Financial & Professional Lines (FINPRO).

In the role, Butler’s key responsibilities will include driving the strategic development of Marsh’s cyber insurance offerings in the UK market.

“Cyber risks are an ever-present danger to our client’s businesses and livelihoods. Kelly is an outstanding leader who has spearheaded numerous market-leading initiatives in the Pacific region,” said Thurston.

“As UK cyber leader, Kelly will play a pivotal role in creating the next-generation cyber solutions that Marsh’s clients need to mitigate rapidly-evolving cyber threats while maximizing the opportunities associated with new and emerging technologies.”

Butler currently serves as Marsh’s chief client officer & cyber practice leader, Pacific, based in Melbourne. Joining Marsh in 2016, she has held several senior positions within the field of cyber insurance and has served as a senior cyber advisor to Marsh’s largest clients.

“While cyber risk and its associated threats are rightly a key boardroom concern, many organizations are still struggling to develop meaningful risk mitigation and insurance programs that will protect their people and assets in the event of a major cyber incident. I look forward to working with the UK team and our Marsh McLennan colleagues globally to help clients develop their cyber defenses,” said Butler.
