Insurance broker and risk advisor, Marsh, has appointed Nils Arne Fagerli as Head of Specialty in Norway.

Based in Oslo, Fagerli will start his new role in April 2023. He will assume overall responsibility for Marsh Specialty’s Marine & Cargo, Energy & Power, and Construction industry clients in the country.

Additionally, the new Head of Specialty will oversee the Financial and Professional Liability (FINPRO), Cyber and Trade Credit practices for Marsh in Norway; and will be reporting to Scott Ørmen, CEO, Marsh Norway and Henrik Ryden, CEO of Marsh Nordics.

Fagerli has over 28 years of experience in insurance and risk management. He is currently CEO of WTW in Norway, where he has been for 10 years. Prior to that he spent almost ten years at ForsikringsMeglerne, the Norwegian Association of Insurance Brokers.

Before that, he spent 16 years with Nordic insurance group Gjensidige in various roles, including Head of Corporate Clients and Brokerage, a role he held for three years.


Scott Ørmen commented: “Our clients are facing unprecedented challenges arising from wide-ranging issues such as cyber risk, climate change, and geopolitical instability.

“Fagerli’s expertise as one of the region’s foremost risk advisors makes him well-suited to lead Marsh Norway’s ambitious growth plans, and assist our clients in navigating the insurance market and mitigate critical risks.”

Henrik Ryden added: “Fagerli has built a reputation as a highly respected leader in the market. His wealth of experience will be invaluable in supporting the growth of our Nordic clients and partnering with clients and colleagues to unlock possibilities.”
