Marsh Opens Office to Serve Clients in the Hawkes Bay

MARSH OPENS OFFICE TO SERVE CLIENTS IN THE HAWKES BAY
WILLY HORVATH APPOINTED BRANCH MANAGER


Auckland, 10 March, 2014 – Marsh, a global leader in insurance broking and risk management, today announced the opening of a new branch in the Hawkes Bay.

As part of a strategy to increase Marsh’s national footprint, Grant Milne, Country Head for New Zealand, was keen to add his former hometown, known for its agriculture and horticulture, to the network.

”As a born and bred man from the Hawkes Bay I am delighted to be opening an office there,” said Milne. “This region provides opportunities perfectly aligned with Marsh’s strengths in risk management and insurance - particularly where exporting is involved. I am also pleased to have Willy Horvath on board as branch manager, who also brings with him local knowledge of the region along with a wealth of industry expertise.”

Prior to coming to Marsh, Willy Horvath was with Vero for over nine years – the last five and a half in Hawkes Bay as the local office manager. He has also worked for NZI.

Commenting on his appointment, Mr Horvath said: “I am very excited about managing the Hawkes Bay office for Marsh. I am fortunate to work in such a great area of the country and have the opportunity to help businesses here to manage their risk and insurance needs.”

The office will be based in Hastings at 211 Karamu Road North, Hastings.

Hawkes Bay is the third new office that Marsh has opened in the last 12 months, having opened offices in Hamilton and Nelson last year.
