Marsh Broker James Murphy Recognized as a 2023 Real Estate Power Broker
James Murphy, Senior Vice President, Marsh
When your clients are among the largest, even the simple solutions can be anything but.
James Murphy makes it look easy anyway.
“It’s a pretty complex task that James handles without fail. He makes it look easy and it is not,” said the risk manager for the largest holder of real estate in the U.S. with Class A or Premier workspaces.
“He just quietly and eloquently gets it done. There’s no real hiccups, so you don’t even really pay attention to how good a job he does. We can count on him 100%.”
With a program that includes more than 40 insurance policies from more than 30 insurers, Carolyn Farino, head of insurance, Americas, at Lendlease, had a similar experience with Murphy.
“It’s a complex program strategy around renewal placement, moving pieces within the portfolio,” said Farino. “It’s like a wonderful Tetris board at the end of the marketing exercise, what that program structure really looks like, but they’re able to navigate and move and align the carriers to make sure that we have the appropriate levels of participation in each of those layers.”
With over $1 billion in limits, Gisel Davila, senior director at Tishman Speyer Properties, feels the same way: “Just putting that program together is coming up with a creative solution,” said Davila.
“He really commands the marketplace and got great results. And he’s great to work with.”
