Willis Re has announced the appointment of David Rainbow as the new managing director of Willis Re Europe, reporting directly to Willis Re International Business CEO Tony Melia.
Willis Re Global Chief Executive Officer John Cavanagh described Europe as a key market for the firm’s international business, and said that there was no-one better than Rainbow to maintain and foster the relationships the firm has in the region whilst continuing to develop Willis Re’s interests.
Rainbow is a veteran of Willis Re, having joined the firm in 1975, and has spent the last 37 years building the firm’s presence in Continental Europe.
Melia said that the firm was well-placed to capitalise upon opportunities in Europe and said that Rainbow was the natural choice to lead Willis Re forward in Europe.
