Global insurance broking and risk management firm Marsh has appointed Christos Adamantiadis as CEO for its newly-combined market of the Middle East and Africa, with the appointment taking effect on 1 May.
Mr Adamantiadis will assume responsibility for all of Marsh’s operations across the Middle East and Africa. He was most recently CEO of Dubai-based Oman Insurance Company (OIC). Previously, he spent 20 years at AIG, overseeing its operations in several geographies including the Middle East, North Africa, Central and Eastern Europe, and Russia.
Based in Dubai, Mr Adamantiadis will report to Mr Flavio Piccolomini, President of Marsh International.
