Marsh today announced that it has boosted its Norwegian energy practice through the appointment of two of the country’s most experienced insurance brokers to its Oslo-based team. Both Grete Henaes and Tormod Hareide will report to Jim Paddon, Head of Marsh’s Scandinavian Energy team.
Ms Henaes will join Marsh as senior vice president, Global Energy Practice. She was most recently at Aon Grieg, where she was responsible for developing Aon’s contractor hub worldwide, acting as account director on some of its largest clients.
With over 30 years’ experience in the industry, Mr Hareide will join as Head of Claims for Marsh’s Marine & Energy practices in Scandinavia, having previously served in the same role at Aon Grieg.
Commenting on the appointments, Andrew George, leader of Marsh’s Energy Practice for Europe, the Middle East and Africa, said: “As North Sea oil reserves begin to decline, energy companies in the region are changing the range and scale of their projects, bringing increasing levels of risk. The appointment of both Grete and Tormod to the Marsh team strengthens our offering to clients at a crucial time. It also underscores our commitment to recruit the highest-calibre experts in their fields.”
Mr Paddon added: “Grete’s broad experience in the global energy insurance markets and her reputation as an exceptional client-focussed broker will be greatly appreciated by Marsh’s oil company and contractor clients. At a time when both upstream and downstream energy claims are becoming more complex, the depth of Tormod’s expertise will complement the already highly-skilled claims team we have in the region.”
Both Ms Henaes and Mr Hareide will join Marsh early next year.
