The Toby Merrill Award for Excellence is given annually to a seasoned thought leader in cyber insurance. This year’s award was presented to Mr. Parisi on June 13, 2019 at the NetDiligence Cyber Risk Summit Philadelphia.

As US Cyber Product Leader for Marsh’s Cyber Center of Excellence, Mr. Parisi leads the effort to develop cyber risk transfer solutions for Marsh clients and bring them to market. His work includes advising and assisting clients in understanding, measuring and managing their cyber risks.

“Bob is a pioneer in cyber insurance,” commented Mark Greisiger, president of NetDiligence. “Like the late Toby Merrill, he’s an icon in the cyber insurance community and a big supporter of the industry’s educational efforts. Over the years, we’ve all benefitted from Bob’s insight and guidance, and we’ve all enjoyed his wit and humor.”

“Toby was a visionary in the cyber insurance world; someone whose passion and love for the business was felt by all. To say I am humbled and honored by this award would be an understatement,” said Mr. Parisi.

This year’s Toby Merrill Award for Excellence is sponsored by Chubb. Chubb and NetDiligence also actively support the Toby Merrill Scholarship fund, which financially supports the educational advancement of students who reflect the qualities of leadership, kindness and strength that Toby epitomized.
