Willis International has named Adam Garrard as the new chief executive of Willis Continental Europe.

The vacancy left by Garrard at Willis Australasia will be filled by Bill Donovan, who previously served as managing director for retail at Willis’s Australasia office.

Both appointments are effective from 1st January 2009, and both executives will report to Willis International chairman Sarah Turvill.

Garrard will be based in Germany, where he will take responsibility for 25 Willis offices across Europe, including operations in Germany, Switzerland, Austria, the Netherlands, Denmark, Norway, Finland, and Sweden.

In addition, he will oversee the managers of Willis’s operations in Italy and Iberia.

Garrard joined Willis in 1994 as assistant to the CEO of Europe. In 2002 he was promoted to CEO of Willis Asia, establishing retail operations in India and China. Three years ago, he transferred to his most recent role of CEO at Willis Australasia.

Garrard said he looks forward to building on the foundation of Willis’s strong reputation in Continental Europe.
