Willis Towers Watson is merging its head of Australasia and head of corporate risk and broking into a single role, with the former head for the region leaving after 27 years with the firm.
Simon Weaver, head of CRB, has been merged into the position, taking over from Andrew Boal.
“Andrew led the company with distinction, taking it through a stage of intense integration and consolidation,” Adam Garrard, head of international for Willis Towers Watson said.
“We are now streamlining the Australasian operations to bring them into line with the structure we have in other geographic regions that form part of our International group.”
He added that Mr Weaver has extensive risk management and insurance broking industry expertise, having been the Australasian head of CRB since early last year.
“He also has a strong knowledge and understanding of our Human Capital and Benefits (HCB) segment, having managed our combined Singapore operations through and after the Willis Towers Watson merger,” he said.
“In all sectors of our business, Simon is committed to fostering the delivery of excellent client experiences, assisted by a highly-experienced senior leadership team across CRB and HCB, which includes our long-established and well-respected superannuation team.”
“There is still more to be done to develop the integrated propositions that Willis Towers Watson delivers for clients around the world,” Mr Weaver said.
“Along with our senior leadership team, I am committed to ensuring we deliver innovative insights and offerings to our clients that result in further strengthened relationships and improved business performance.”
