International insurance broker and risk advisor Marsh announced today that Gisele “Gigi” Norris has joined the firm to lead its US HealthCare Practice. In this role, Norris is responsible for the delivery of healthcare risk management knowledge, expertise and transactional services to clients across the U.S.
Norris joins Marsh from Aon, where for the last 20 years she served as the Western region HealthCare Leader and Pandemic Task Force co-leader. Based in San Francisco, Norris reports to Jeffrey Alpaugh, Marsh’s US and Canada Growth and Industry Leader.
Norris brings to the role more than 25 years of experience creating innovative risk solutions to help health care providers and payers achieve organizational and financial objectives. She also holds a doctorate in public health, with a concentration in epidemiology, and has provided counsel on prevention and mitigation of infectious disease risk to a diverse range of industries.
“Gigi joins the firm at a critical time for the healthcare industry as the pandemic has dramatically altered the risk profile of traditional health care providers,” Alpaugh said. “Her proven track record of providing strategic risk consulting and advice to some of the nation’s largest and most complex healthcare companies, coupled with her epidemiological expertise, will further help our clients confront today’s healthcare challenges.”
“Healthcare companies today need a risk advisor that can deftly identify emerging risks, assist in re-prioritizing risks and proactively bring risk management solutions to the table,” Norris said. “Marsh’s dedicated team of healthcare professionals coupled with its data and analytics are second to none in the industry. I’m excited to join the firm and lead this distinguished group.”
