Willis has announced a series of senior management appointments at its reinsurance, wholesale and placement divisions.
The changes usher in the next phase in the development of Willis Global, a new business unit launched last year, which now encompasses Willis Re, Global Specialties, Global Markets, Faber & Dumas, Willis Capital Markets & Advisory, Willis Global Placement, Willis Facultative, Global Solutions and Willis Analytics.
Today’s appointments, which are all from within, included:
At Willis Re: Peter Hearn as chairman, and Steve Hearn as chief executive officer.
Dominic Samengo-Turner will replace Steve Hearn as chief executive officer of Willis’ London Market Wholesale businesses, moving from chief executive officer of Global Placement, where he, in turn, is being replaced by Alastair Swift.
Commenting on the changes, Willis Global chairman and chief executive officer, Grahame Millwater, says: “The synergies that exist within the Willis Global organisation and our integrated model make this next stage of the evolution not only natural but easy.”
He adds: “The businesses in Willis Global offer an awesome array of skills, capabilities and knowledge that our clients, our retail distribution and our third party intermediary partners find increasingly exciting, valuable and unique.”
