Insurance broker and risk advisor Marsh has announced the appointments of Steven Capace and Bryan Salek to co-lead its US government contracting practice.
In their new roles, Capace and Salek will head a team responsible for addressing the risks facing government contractors, including civil complaints, audits, legal actions, and administrative and regulatory proceedings. Capace and Salek will be based in Washington, D.C., and will report to Jeff Alpaugh, US and Canada growth and industry leader for Marsh.
Both join Marsh from Willis Towers Watson, where they served as executive vice presidents and co-founders of the company’s government contracting practice. They have more than 50 years of combined experience in federal government contractor risk management.
“More than ever, firms contracting with the US government require deep expertise and the latest specialist thinking on risk and insurance,” said Capace (pictured top). “I look forward to working with Bryan in leading Marsh’s dedicated national team as we help clients manage their risk and support new business opportunities.”
“I’m excited to join Marsh and to play a critical role in providing the risk transfer and advisory solutions that contribute to the success of Marsh’s government contractor clients,” said Salek (pictured below).
