Marsh Captive Solutions has created a new consulting role in Asia with Lawrence Bird, currently at WTW, re-joining in Singapore.
Bird, who will begin working for Marsh again in July, will be captives consulting leader, Asia, leading strategic client conversations on captives across the region, including feasibility studies, strategic captive reviews, and long-term captive strategies for clients.
He is currently director of captive and insurance management for Asia Pacific at WTW, who he joined in February 2022.
Bird has previously worked for Marsh in Guernsey for seven years and as head of office for Marsh Captives in Bermuda.
Ellen Charnley, president of Marsh Captive Solutions, said: “We are delighted to have Lawrence re-join Marsh in Asia, and support our clients and colleagues amid significant growth in captives in the region.”
Bird will report to Peter Johnson, head of advisory, Marsh Asia, and his appointment follows further reshuffling of the captive team announced at the end of last year.
Captive Intelligence reported in December Stuart Herbert, Singapore-based since 2011, was moving to the UK to become international captive consulting practice leader, with Nisala Weerasooriya moving from New York to oversee offices in Singapore, Labuan and Australia.
Asia remains a key growth area for captives. Three new captives were established in Singapore in 2022 with five formed in Labuan.
