In this role, Mr. Faull will help to develop Marsh’s global sustainability and climate services – including risk modelling and management – to support clients as they transition towards net zero carbon emissions.
Mr Faull will also work closely with Ms Barnes and Ryan Bond, Head of Climate and Sustainability Insurance Innovation, to develop new services and solutions that will address emerging risks around the environment and the circular economy.
Mr Faull joined Marsh in 2017; most recently he was Head of Strategic Risk Consulting for UK & Ireland. Before joining Marsh, he was a Principal at Oliver Wyman for nine years, consulting to financial services firms on a range of risk-related issues. Prior to this as part of his post-doctoral research, Mr. Faull was the project coordinator for climateprediction.net, a major climate modelling experiment created by the University of Oxford.
Commenting on Mr Faull’s appointment, Ms. Barnes said: “Robust risk management has a critical role to play in increasing organisational resilience to climate-related risks, while supporting the transition to a more sustainable future and realising net zero ambitions. Nick has dedicated his career to advancing organisational understanding of sustainability and climate risk and brings a wealth of experience to the team that will be of great benefit to our clients.”
Mr Faull added: “Increasing their overall resilience to the risks associated with climate change, while meeting their obligations around sustainability, should be a key strategic priority for organisations as we move towards net zero and a nature-positive world. I look forward to working with Amy, Ryan, and our Marsh colleagues to support clients in addressing these issues and helping build more resilient communities.”
