Marsh Inc., a global risk and insurance service firm, has formed a renewable energy team. The new group, which will work closely with the firm's global marine and energy practice and the power and utilities industry practice, will help clients address risks associated with developing clean energy.

In addition, the firm has named Susan K. Stokes and Tom Sexton as the group's co-leaders. Stokes, who is based at Marsh's New York headquarters, will be responsible for the renewable energy team in the U.S. Sexton, who is based in London, will be responsible for the firm's renewable energy group in Europe, the Middle East, Asia and Africa, the company says.

"The creation of Marsh's renewable energy team provides both a framework as well as dedicated resources from multiple practices to expand our efforts to help clients address emerging risk issues in this dynamic sector," comments Stokes.
