Marsh today announced the appointment of David Carlson to lead its newly created Manufacturing and Automotive Practice in the US. Mr. Carlson will be responsible for building and growing the practice and ensuring consistent delivery of Marsh’s industry-leading products and solutions to manufacturing and automotive clients on a national basis.
Since joining Marsh in 2003, Mr. Carlson has advised many of Marsh’s manufacturing and automotive clients on areas such as employee safety, behavioral risk, ergonomics, and fleet management. He most recently served as the Central Zone Workforce Strategies Practice Leader for Marsh Risk Consulting. Prior to joining Marsh, Mr. Carlson spent five years as the group manager of environmental, health and safety for an international manufacturer of specialty fasteners.
Commenting on his appointment, David Bidmead, Marsh’s US CEO, said: “David Carlson’s manufacturing and automotive industry experience, including as a risk management professional, and passion for delivering risk management solutions to our clients makes him an ideal candidate to lead our new formalized practice. Establishing this new Manufacturing and Automotive group better aligns Marsh’s colleagues nationally and enables us to deliver a dynamic set of analytics, products, and solutions—including those within our Workers’ Compensation Center of Excellence—to address our clients’ changing risk management needs.
Mr. Carlson, who is based in Cleveland, Ohio, added: “The manufacturing and automotive industries continue to face substantial workers’ compensation risks along with a myriad of emerging risks, including supply chain exposures, products liability, corporate sustainability, trade credit, and cyber liability. The ability to better define risk, design effective solutions to mitigate risk, and deliver exceptional results on those strategies is the cornerstone of our mission to help clients. I’m delighted to lead this extremely talented industry group at Marsh and to help our clients proactively manage the evolving risk landscape and ultimately their total cost of risk.”
