Anne Parkin Joins Sigma7 to Lead Industrial Manufacturing and Real Estate Verticals

Veteran risk consulting leader to support clients across growing risk services platform

New York, NY, June 14, 2022 — Risk services company Sigma7 today announced the appointment of respected risk consulting executive Anne Parkin as Industry Leader, Industrial Manufacturing and Real Estate. Parkin joins Sigma7 from Marsh, where she was Property/Valuations Consulting Growth Leader. Before Marsh, Parkin had a long career as Chief Commercial Officer, among other roles, at Aon Global Risk Consulting.

In her new position, Parkin will support the design and delivery of client services facing the industrial manufacturing and real estate industries. With a family of specialist brands that includes Paragon Risk Engineering, RWH Myers and Strategia Worldwide, Sigma7 offers extensive technical, sector and geographic risk expertise and serves over 300 clients in nine countries.

A mechanical engineer and MBA by training, Parkin has risen over her career from being a world- class property risk engineer to a commercial leader at global organizations Marsh and Aon. Over her nine years as Aon’s Chief Commercial Officer, Parkin drove sales strategies and new product development resulting in a doubling of risk control revenue, and served as a global thought leader in property control.

Andrew Hersh, CEO of Sigma7, said, “I’ve had the honor of working closely with Anne during our time together at Aon. Anne’s depth of expertise, unrelenting focus on client outcomes, and high energy is well known by clients and colleagues alike. Anne is the right person to be our very first Industry Leader, and shape that role to deliver maximum client value through the Sigma7 platform. I’m excited to have Anne’s partnership on the Sigma7 leadership team.”

Parkin commented on her new position, “Sigma7 is building a highly unique and world-class risk services business just as many organizations are facing unprecedented threats to their operations. The opportunity to be on the ground floor and help turn Andrew’s vision into reality will be a highlight of my career.”
