Thurston said: “Cyber risks are an ever-present danger to our clients’ businesses and livelihoods. Kelly is an outstanding leader who has spearheaded numerous market-leading initiatives in the Pacific region.

“As UK Cyber Leader, Kelly will play a pivotal role in creating the next-generation cyber solutions that Marsh’s clients need to mitigate rapidly evolving cyber threats while maximising the opportunities associated with new and emerging technologies.”

Butler is currently working as Marsh Pacific’s chief client office and cyber practice leader and is based in Melbourne, Australia.

Since joining in 2016, Butler has taken up various senior cyber insurance roles to oversee Marsh’s client advisory and placement services related to cyber risk across the Pacific region.

Butler has also worked as a senior cyber adviser for the company’s largest clients.

Butler said: “While cyber risk and its associated threats are rightly a key boardroom concern, many organisations are still struggling to develop meaningful risk mitigation and insurance programmes that will protect their people and assets in the of a major cyber incident.

“I look forward to working with the UK team and our Marsh McLennan colleagues globally to help clients develop their cyber defences.”
