Our Leadership

You’re not simply a policy number at FM Global. You’re much more.

As a client, you become an owner in our mutual company. So, unlike at most companies, our clients have a voice in how we perform and manage. 

Our rigorous corporate governance program is made up of a board of directors, eight advisory boards, and five risk management executive councils. But most importantly, board-appointed clients also have a seat on the advisory and regional councils, and provide a vital perspective that inspires our long-term strategy.
