Marsh & McLennan Companies, Inc. (NYSE: MMC), a global professional services firm providing advice and solutions in risk, strategy, and human capital, announced today that Nicole Gardner has been appointed Chief Diversity & Inclusion Officer. Her appointment is effective July 15.

In her new role, Ms. Gardner is responsible for driving cultural and organizational change at Marsh & McLennan Companies, working with leadership to promote a vibrant, inclusive, and diverse culture across the global enterprise. She will sit on Marsh & McLennan Companies’ Diversity Council and be a member of the HR Executive Team. She reports to Chief Human Resources Officer Laurie Ledford.

Ms. Gardner was a partner at Oliver Wyman, where she most recently led its General Consulting Group. Oliver Wyman is a global leader in management consulting, and a subsidiary of Marsh & McLennan Companies. At Oliver Wyman, she also played a key leadership role in its Inclusion & Diversity efforts, establishing and managing the function, and serving as a member of the Inclusion Council. An active supporter of Oliver Wyman’s employee resource groups (ERGs), Ms. Gardner co-founded and was Executive Sponsor of Gay & Lesbians at Oliver Wyman (GLOW), as well as co-founder and Senior Advisor to Women at Oliver Wyman (WOW).
