Global advisory firm Willis Towers Watson has named Andrew Boal as its new regional head of Australasia to take effect immediately.
Mr Boal has been with Willis Towers Watson for 24 years, and prior to this appointment served as head of large accounts for Australasia and general manager of corporate risk and broking for Victoria.
“Andrew is well respected for his strong leadership, client relationships and ability to develop strategic solutions for clients," said Willis Towers Watson head of international business Adam Garrard.
“He brings to the role a high level of expertise in superannuation, employee benefits, HR services and investment, together with a strong knowledge of the company’s corporate risk and broking operations."
Mr Boal said there is plenty of “untapped potential” in the region, adding that he is excited to lead the Australasian arm of the business.
“As Head of Australasia, I look forward to ensuring we continue to provide our clients with the innovative insights and offerings that will deliver improved business performance," he said.
“This is an exciting time for Willis Towers Watson and I believe we are extremely well placed for success in Australia and New Zealand."
