Willis has appointed Alastair Burns as managing director of its Insurance Facilities Practice, which is part of Willis Global Placement, a division that co-ordinates worldwide insurance placement strategy.

Mr Burns is moving from a 20-year stint with Marsh and will take up his London-based post in September, reporting to Dominic Samengo-Turner, chief executive officer, Global Placement.

According to the broker’s president, Grahame Millwater, since the creation of the Global Placement unit in early 2009, the firm has successfully consolidated certain books of business into facilities to give clients broader terms and eliminate inefficiencies.

Commenting on the appointment, he says: “Alastair is the right person to drive this forward and we are convinced that dedicated coordination in this area will significantly benefit our clients.”
