“As a large, global entity, Marsh and Guy Carpenter have the opportunity to make a real impact on the communities in which we live and work,” said David Ezekiel, Country Corporate Officer of Marsh & McLennan Companies, Bermuda and Chairman of Marsh’s Bermuda Charity Committee. “It’s a responsibility we take seriously in Bermuda, not only during Global Volunteer Month, but throughout the year. Bermuda is a beautiful place and we want to give back to the community.”
