Marsh names Southeast region leader


Marsh L.L.C. has named Lou Ann Layton Atlanta-based Southeast zone leader, the brokerage said Monday.

Marsh said Ms. Layton will be responsible for client initiatives, new business and talent development across the District of Columbia and eight states: Florida, Georgia, Maryland, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Tennessee and Virginia. She succeeds Bill Lyon, Marsh’s U.S. Risk Practices leader, who served as interim Southeast zone leader.

Ms. Layton most recently served as Marsh’s San Francisco-based Pacific North Partnership leader in San Francisco. 

Dave Fuhrman, Marsh’s Los Angeles-based West Zone leader, will assume additional oversight of Marsh’s Pacific North Partnership, which includes offices in Denver; Honolulu; Salt Lake City; San Francisco and San Jose, California; Seattle; and Portland, Oregon.

Ms. Layton was named one of the Women to Watch by Business Insurance in 2006, when she was New York-based managing director and national D&O practice leader for Marsh Inc.
