Marsh launches sport, entertainment and media team

Broker Marsh has launched a dedicated sport, entertainment & media industry group in the UK & Ireland which will be led by global events specialist Richard Tolley.
As a result of the change, Tolley will be promoted to Marsh’s industry leadership team and retain his position as deputy leader, global sports & events. Other senior members of the team include Edel Ryan, who has been appointed as head of strategic business development for the group having previously been head of media & entertainment at JLT Specialty. Steve McGuinness, previously managing director, Bluefin Sport, also becomes head of sport, UK & Ireland, within the group.

The 60-strong team will report into Charles Beresford-Davies, Marsh’s head of industries, UK and Ireland, who commented: “The impact of COVID-19 on the sports, entertainment and media industries clearly presents great challenges for our clients. The formation of Marsh’s SEM industry team will play a key role in expanding the support and breadth of expertise we can offer our clients as we work through this crisis and beyond.”

Tolley added: “The health and wellbeing of staff and the return to the workplace are just some of the issues associated with COVID-19 and one of the many increasingly complex risks that sports, entertainment and media organisations now face.”
