B.P. Marsh has appointed Rupert Villers as a Non-Executive Director on the Board of Denison and Partners. The appointment is subject to the customary regulatory approval.

We believe that his four decades of experience in management, underwriting and broking in the London Insurance market will add much to the firm.”
