“Christos is a highly experienced leader who excels in developing teams, services, and solutions across multiple geographies that benefit our clients and deliver growth. Under his leadership, our Continental Europe region will be well-placed to support clients in this rapidly-changing and often volatile risk landscape,” said Flavio Piccolomini, President of Marsh’s International Division.

Following a 20-year career at insurance group AIG (including a sting as Managing Director for the Middle East), Adamantiadis relocated to the UAE in 2015 to become the CEO of Oman Insurance Company. In 2018 he crossed to Marsh, where he helped the risk consultancy and insurance broker grow and professionalise its operations in the region.

Globally, Marsh has around 45,000 staff operating in 130 countries. The firm is part of $20 billion group Marsh McLennan, also the parent of Guy Carpenter, Mercer and Oliver Wyman.
