Marsh L.L.C. on Tuesday said it has appointed Sally Williams as director of risk and governance for its U.K. and Ireland activities.

Ms. Williams, who most recently was head of risk at the London branch of National Australia Bank Group Ltd. and a board member of NAB Europe Ltd., will succeed John Nicholson, who retired earlier this month, the brokerage said in a statement.

In her new role, London-based Ms. Williams will lead the development and adoption of Marsh's risk management and governance policies across the United Kingdom and Ireland, Marsh said, and will serve on the board of Marsh Ltd.

“At Marsh, we believe that embedding robust risk management practices and ensuring that colleagues perform to the highest ethical and professional standards are absolutely fundamental in a well-managed company,” said Mark Weil, CEO of Marsh U.K. and Ireland, in a statement. “The strengthening of our U.K. board with the appointment of Sally, who is a compliance professional of the highest caliber, is testament to our continued commitment to adhering to these standards.”

Prior to joining NAB, Ms. Williams was group risk director at London-based insurer Aviva P.L.C.
