Brian Marsh OBE


Brian started his career in insurance broking and underwriting in Lloyd’s and the London and overseas market over 55 years ago.  He has over 50 years’ experience in building, buying and selling financial services businesses particularly in the insurance sector.

In 1981 Brian set up the Marsh Charitable Trust with the sum of £70,000.  Over the years he has been very involved as both Founder and Chairman and put a lot of time and effort into growing its resources and activities. Brian has always been an advocate of supporting ‘day to day’ expenses and has therefore steered the Trust away from funding projects and towards funding core costs, building long standing relationships with the organisations the Trust supports. He has also done much work in promoting and rewarding the unsung heroes of the sector. Both these activities play an important part in the Trust’s underlying core values.
