Marsh & McLennan Companies holds UK supplier diversity fair

London, 11 December 2012 – More than 30 representatives from minority-owned businesses across the UK recently attended a procurement mini-fair at Marsh & McLennan Companies’ European headquarters in London.

The event was organised by Marsh & McLennan Companies in association with Minority Supplier Development UK (MSDUK), a leading supplier diversity organisation, and provided minority businesses with the opportunity to explore supplying their services to the firm.

John Villani, Head of Supplier Diversity at Marsh & McLennan Companies, commented: “Supplier diversity is an important component of our global corporate social responsibility programme. The event enabled ethnic minority-owned suppliers to meet with Marsh & McLennan Companies’ key procurement contacts, allowing us to pre-qualify and potentially increase our vendor spend with a more diverse range of suppliers.”

Raj Pattani, Business Development Manager at MSDUK, commented: “I felt the event was extremely successful as it enabled ethnic minority Businesses from our database to have direct access with the procurement teams at Marsh & McLennan Companies. We will now continue working closely with the team at Marsh & McLennan Companies to track the progress of all the businesses that attended, hopefully resulting in some commercial benefits for both parties.
